Office Gemini team ‘ORF’ seeks to alleviate localization woes with Office product releases

Barely 24 hours have passed since Mary-Jo Foley revealed Office Gemini, and now I’ve got a second mention (here’s the first) to bring you from an employee who literally just updated their online resume to include their involvement with the pending upgrade to Office:

In Office Gemini, I moved to lead Office Resource Fabric (ORF) development team to design/implement an innovative localization approach which can eliminate common translation bottlenecks. ORF empowers Office to release our products to global markets/customers at ever increased velocity, scale, and quality, at a low cost.

I thought that mention looked a little too good to be true for just having gone up a day after Office Gemini was revealed, but, sure enough, Google currently has a cached date of 3/18 for that profile (which will inevitably change soon) and the only thing lacking therein is the Office Gemini bit. As such, I think this is yet another good mention.

Anyway, it sounds like Office Gemini is really shaping up to be quite an overhaul, and not just a small set of minor upgrades. The two mentions we have now specifically address significant localization and deployment changes in Office — something I’ve been seeing additional chatter about in regards to Office 16 for a while now.

Whatever the case may be, we still have only everything to learn about Office Gemini, so I’ll keep my nose to the grindstone and see what else I can dig up as we count down the days until Build 2013, where Microsoft will most likely reveal not only the full scope of Blue, but Office Gemini as well.

  10. Hello! I’ve been following your web site for some time now and finally got
    the courage to go ahead and give you a shout
    out from Humble Texas! Just wanted to tell you keep
    up the great work!

  11. Today, taking into consideration the fast way of living that everyone leads, credit
    cards have a big demand in the economy. Persons coming from every arena are
    using credit card and people who aren’t using the credit cards
    have prepared to apply for 1. Thanks for giving your ideas in credit cards.

    In these days of austerity as well as relative anxiousness about taking on debt, lots of people balk up against the idea of having a credit
    card in order to make purchase of merchandise or pay for a trip, preferring, instead only to rely on this tried as well as trusted way
    of making payment – cash. However, if you possess the cash available
    to make the purchase entirely, then, paradoxically, this is the best time for
    you to use the credit card for several motives.
    One thing is that one of the most frequent incentives for using
    your credit card is a cash-back or maybe rebate
    offer. Generally, you’ll get 1-5% back in various
    buying. Depending on the credit cards, you may get 1% back on most purchases, and 5%
    again on expenditures made at convenience stores, gas stations, grocery
    stores and ‘member merchants’.
    Thanks for these tips. One thing I also believe is that often credit cards giving a 0% apr often appeal to consumers together
    with zero interest, instant authorization and easy on the web balance transfers, but beware of the real factor that can void your
    own 0% easy streets annual percentage rate and throw one out into the poor house quickly.

    Thanks for your thoughts. One thing we’ve noticed is the fact that banks along
    with financial institutions know the spending practices of consumers as well as understand that plenty of people max outside their real credit cards around the trips.
    They prudently take advantage of this fact and begin flooding your own inbox plus snail-mail box with
    hundreds of no-interest APR card offers right after the holiday season ends.
    Knowing that if you’re like 98% in the American open public,
    you’ll rush at the possible opportunity to consolidate
    consumer credit card debt and shift balances to 0 interest rates credit cards.
