Business Diary: 18 October 2011
Lost in the tunnel of translation.
Pointless business buzzword of the day is the magnificent “interoperability“, flourished without embarassment by Eurotunnel in an effusive press release. The company said that its new Channel Tunnel radio system “will provide full interoperability with the European railway network”. Translation? The company’s radio system will “work with” the Euro network. No charge, lads.
