Transliteracy and Business

Our Women, Business and Blogging Conference last Friday 8 June 2007 pulled together an interesting group of people – mostly women, mostly business but some academic and education researchers – for an extremely lively conversation about where blogging fits into business practice. One of the delegates, Vijay Singh Riyait, heard mention of transliteracy at the conference and wonders what it means, so I've suggested he take a look over here at PART.
Since the conference I've been thinking about the relationship between transliteracy and business. This came up at our May colloquium too. I do think that, whether they realise it or not, companies are already seeking transliterate people to employ. I'm going to take a look at some random job adverts to see whether there is any evidence to support that idea.
