Open Brackets

An interesting thread has opened up on Open Brackets, a weblog dedicated mainly to translation:

"French employees will accuse a US multinational in court today of discrimination, claiming that they are being forced to speak English. [...]

“We think that employees should have the right to understand the instructions they’re given and to follow what is being said in meetings.”

The staff say it is not a question of national pride, but of discrimination. They claim that people have been denied promotion because they speak poor English, and that those who protest are accused of rejecting the company’s ethos."
