    ….isn’t the digital hub supposed to be for “new media” companies. Or is it available to any company at all?

    Its just I read this news report:
    http://www.rte.ie/business/2005/0203/jobs.html
    which details various companies creating new jobs and it says:

    The companies are Hartford Financial Services Group in Swords, car rental company AutoEurope in Sandyford, hospitality and catering company MarketBoomer in the Digital Hub and Colgate-Palmolive in Citywest Business Park.

    Maybe they are looking after the canteen or something….. ;)

    ……or the Hub is getting desperate to fill office space.

    was talking to Seamus Gallen from EI at the Awards last night – who looks after the companies in the Hub – and they managed to fill all 22/23 places in 9 months – all of them new media/digital companies, and well ahead of schedule

    BabelFish:

    Let us go the children, one calms itself, one breathes a great blow and one drinks water glass… I am there, Bomberman, do not fear anything!

    Let us put these clowns, these monkeys and these let us cling-ons with evil, that Diable! They kill me our language!

    A ‘proper’ localisation job:

    Now, now, kids. Let’s calm down, let’s take a breath and let’s drink a glass of water… I’m here, Bomberman, don’t be afraid!

    Hell, let’s put the hurt on these clowns, monkeys and Klingons! They’re killing our language!

    The morale of the story: don’t rely on Babelfish to do a proper localization job :D
