Rare Pokémon Teach us About Localization
 
Where can you catch these rare Pokémon? 
 
Companies that want to achieve success on the global market must localize. This is what Niantic did by making 4 different Pokémon only available in certain continents in the real world, known as the regional rare Pokémon. Cultural and local aspects were considered to select the Pokémon and use those regional characteristics for local engagement.
 
Each of these 4 Pokémon have local characteristics of the continents they reside in: 
 
·  Asia: Pokémon: #083 – Farfetch’d
"Farfetch'd" is known as "kamonegi" in Japanese which translates to "A duck has come along carrying a leek on its back" 
 
·  Australia: Pokémon: #115 – Kangaskhan
It's no surprise that Australia's localized Pokémon is inspired by an animal native to the land and heavily associated to its culture - A Kangaroo. 
 
·  Europe: Pokémon: #122 – Mr. Mime
In the Pokemon world, Mr.Mime is a pantomime. In German, Mr.Mime's name translates to "Pantimos" which comes from the word pantomime. 
 
·  North America: Pokémon: #128 – Tauros
This Pokémon is inspired by the North American Bison. Its name also comes from the astrological sign Taurus which translates to "the Bull" in Latin. 
 
Locale: set of characteristics, information, or conventions specific to the linguistic, cultural, technical, and geographical conventions of a target audience. * ISO 17100 Translation Services Standard
 
"A Brampton judge has dismissed an impaired driving charge against a man who was not given access to a Punjabi interpreter when he spoke with a lawyer following his arrest, which violated his right to counsel."
 
"Our world is increasingly connected, and the impact of globalization reaches organizations in all market sectors. It's easier than ever for companies across industries to operate in any country throughout the world, opening up new market opportunities and chances for high returns. But organizations face a significant barrier to entry when expanding into new markets: language." 
 
 
"Fran French, Geraldine German, Dudley Dutch, Spike Spanish, Polly Polish and Ron Romanian are six British interpreters at the EU. They each speak two European languages, as well as English, but none speaks..."
Empowerment Tips
 
Benefits of Drinking Water & How Much You Should Drink 
 
It keeps us alive, quenches our thirst, and keeps our bodies running at an optimal level. But what are some of the real benefits besides keeping us alive? How does it positively impact our system? And how much should we have anyways?
 
Here Are Some of the Benefits of Drinking Water!
 
Increase Energy 
Since your brain is mostly water, drinking it helps you think, focus better, and be more alert. On top of that, your energy levels go through the roof! 
 
Lose Weight
By drinking water, your belly fills up and your hunger is reduced. It also boosts your metabolism and has zero calories. 
 
Have Great Skin
Drinking water moisturises your skin, keeping it fresh, soft and glowing. It gets rid of wrinkles and takes years off your appearance. 
 
Boosts Immune System
If you drink enough water, your likelihood of sickness is significantly reduced. Regular consumption of water helps fight against the flu, cancer, and other serious diseases. 
 
Gets Rid of Headaches
Often headaches are caused by dehydration. Want to get rid of that headache that keeps coming up? Drink up! 
 
Save Money
On top of it being the best liquid you could ever put into your body, it is absolutely free at most restaurants. Heal your body and your bank account at the same time! 
 
Puts You in a Great Mood
The way we treat our bodies has a significant impact on our emotional well being. The healthier our bodies are, the better handle we will have on our emotional states. 
 
Recommended water intake:
Many experts say that you should aim for 8 cups of water a day. But considering all of our bodies are different, a better measure is half your weight in ounces daily. 
 
Weight Divided by 2 = Water intake in ounces
 
A male that weighs 180lbs should have around 90 ounces of water daily (11.25 cups) 
 
A Female that weights 130lbs should have around 65 ounces of water daily (8.125 cups)

Why do so many priests, who have to say the words of the new translation, dislike them? Maybe because the principle of intentionally elevated language wasn't explained. 
In late November, when the Church marks the first Sunday of Advent, English-speaking Catholics will have been using a new translation of the Roman Missal, the collection of prayers and other texts used in the Mass, for five years.
