About a month ago, I wrote about “Personal Notes Languages”. I added a questionnaire to find out which language people use when writing their notes at work, their mother tongue or the working language.
The target group was people who are working in an environment, which language is not their mother tongue.
For example, they are immigrants or working in an international company and everything related to work is not their mother tongue.
Maybe you are an English native and working in German Company, or like me, I am Persian native speaking, working in a German company and the working language is English.
It seems like people use the working language and mother tongue, and then working language.
Only 5% have chosen only mother tongue for writing personal notes.
The time that my team leader asked me the question, I thought that most people use their mother tongue to write their personal working notes.
So the results are the opposite. Maybe, it depends on their mother tongue, isn’t it?
I seriously like to continue this observation, if you are interested, contact me and let’s create a good and clear questionnaire and correct observation.
