Word of the Week – Xpert
There is knowledge, and then there is expertise. We all have knowledge in one field or another, but when the word expert began to appear in the English language in the early 15th century, it signified something more. Derived from the Latin expertus, it described “a person wise through experience”. At XTM International we like that description very much, because while we respect academic achievement, when it comes to advising clients on matters that will shape their commercial future we believe voices of experience should be heard. In 1825 the word expert gained new kudos when it was given a legal definition. An expert witness was classed as someone who:
“by virtue of special acquired knowledge or experience on a subject, presumably not within the knowledge of men generally, may testify in a court of justice to matters of opinion thereon, as distinguished from ordinary witnesses, who can in general testify only to facts.”
When XTM International assembled a team of language technology experts, this was the standard we aimed for. Client feedback has confirmed that we hit the target every time, and so today we’re happy to announce that our Solutions Architects team has officially been renamed XTM Xperts. It’s an appropriate name for a team of gifted, client-focused professionals with expert-level knowledge of XTM Cloud and years of experience in localization technology. Among the Xperts team, you’ll find aspiring home cooks, polyglots, meta artists, semi-geeks, word nerds, fitness fanatics, language innovation evangelists, connectivity meisters and avid readers.
They are your guides to all things XTM.
Global XTM Xperts Manager Alex Zekakis commented,
“This new name acknowledges the team’s specialist skills. Xperts are tech-savvy individuals with a solution oriented mindset, and I’m proud to lead them. And they won’t rest on their laurels. Every day they look for better ways to do the job. Better ways to serve the client. That makes me proudest of all. ”
Every time we enhance our software, we do it with the client in mind. However fast and however far we move our product forward, we never forget that we’re in the business of helping people. That’s why XTM Xperts aren’t just technically gifted, they are also communicators, connecting you with best in class localization technology.
