?While review tools can empower users to control millions of records, manage multiple users, create critical security layers and potentially integrate with other software, understanding an eDiscovery Review Software?s underlying database structure and the potential to access the data within it is a critical factor,? states Campbell. ?It is imperative that law firms and organizations clearly understand eDiscovery Review Software and database features, functions and benefits prior to ?signing on the dotted line?.?
?Should I Use an External or Embedded Database?? examines the differences and considerations when choosing between databases across four key areas of evaluation:

Over the past year, New York-based translation and localization agency Acclaro has experienced a 250 percent growth rate in the demand for eLearning localization services from their prospects and clients, and 2013 will see even greater numbers according to Vice President Ora Solomon.
?There has been an increase in eLearning adoption across the board in all industries, and as a result we?re seeing a big increase in the demand for eLearning localization. Our eLearning projects have doubled in volume since 2009 and we expect them to double again in 2013.?
In 2012 alone, 10 percent of total revenue at Acclaro came from eLearning localization services. This unprecedented demand is caused by both the increased volume of companies entering the global market at an earlier phase in their evolution (i.e., technology companies with low barrier to entry for new markets), as well as the booming trend of eLearning as an economical and convenient staff training solution.
For the first time, companies are giving foreign language eLearning tools the same investment as their English language counterparts. Global brands are pioneering this newfound commitment to international employees for good reason. Because many companies now have more staff abroad than in the United States, investing in personalized eLearning has become essential to brand consistency across cultures. ?Leading brands understand the value of training foreign employees on equal footing as in the U.S,? says Solomon.
Profitable companies have always recognized the return on investment (ROI) of high quality training materials, and now they are putting the same value on eLearning for foreign language staff.
?Companies are spending a lot of money on employee training, presuming that a well-trained employee who buys in to the brand and truly understands the products and services will provide better support to the end customer, ultimately leading to more sales. There lies the ROI,? said Solomon.
In 2013, Acclaro expects to see revenue growth of at least 100 percent from eLearning translation and localization services. ELearning poses unique language, technical and cultural challenges, from matching the timing of voiceover audio with its respective on-screen written components to establishing cultural relevance through regional tone and style.
To adapt to the growing demand of eLearning localization and translation services, Acclaro is ramping up resources. Solomon comments, ?In 2013, we will continue to build our global team of linguists, voice talent and technical staff to support online training and video translation projects. We need to move quickly to stay abreast of changes in the eLearning tools and technology.? Acclaro is also expanding its pool of talent with professional multimedia producers, sound engineers and subject matter experts to support the growing demand for eLearning translation and localization services.
Acclaro is an international translation and localization agency that helps the world?s leading brands succeed across cultures. With its global headquarters in New York and offices and affiliates in San Francisco, Boston, Buenos Aires, Bangkok, Tokyo and Paris, the agency translates websites, marketing campaigns, documents and software for global enterprises, giving clients an authentic voice in key language markets.

Most online marketing programs don’t seem to last long. But, the Million Dollar Marketing Machine (MDMM), started 4 years ago as the Automated Money Machine, is immensely popular mostly because it is a high commission sales model and does not require building a massive downstream affiliate network that most online marketing programs require. But, It’s the high commission model that attracts most that are successful with it.
While the cost of entry can be high, ranging from $ 500 – $ 20,000, most opt in at the $ 3,500 level. The higher the level, the more resources are provided to make these high commission sales. The products are software and ebooks on digital marketing which are kept current, which is the second reason this high commission sale program works.
However as Tim Cooper of Have Fun From Home says “You need to be ready to put in the effort if you want the results”.
There are several ways to promote the MDMM including press releases, voice broadcasting, craigslist advertising and ezines. However, search engine optimization of your website with a video on the home page and conducting webinars are two of the most effective.

This month, organizations across the country will take part in the 11th annual National Mentoring Month to raise awareness of mentoring in its various forms and to recruit volunteers to become involved in formal mentoring programs. Goodwill Industries International is proud to take part in National Mentoring Month, continuing a long tradition of helping young people and adults prepare for and succeed in the workplace. Goodwill also provides innovative online career mentoring for adults, who need guidance as they build their careers. Virtual career mentors help entry and mid-level job seekers determine if a career is right for them and engage in online conversations with career professionals and with their peers who are going through similar experiences. They also gain access to relevant blog content, videos and webinars produced by Goodwill career experts and other subject matter experts, as well as encouraging, first-person career success stories. Since 2010, Goodwill has helped busy adults receive the virtual career services on the Good Prospects website they need to make good career decisions, build their expertise and earn the credentials to compete in today?s labor market, while balancing the needs of their families.
?For 110 years, Goodwill has focused on helping people find meaningful employment,? said Jim Gibbons, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries International. ?A major part of that mission is working with young people and adults to ensure that they are adequately prepared to enter the workplace.?
Created in 2002 by the Harvard School of Public Health and MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership, National Mentoring Month focuses attention on the need for mentors, as well as how individuals, businesses, government agencies, schools, faith communities and nonprofits can work together to increase the number of mentors available to ensure brighter futures for America?s youth. Each year since its launch, National Mentoring Month has enjoyed the strong support of the U.S. President and members of Congress.
While most mentoring programs focus on education or youth development, Goodwill’s programs are among the few that are dedicated to career awareness and development, making sure youth and adults have all the tools they need to succeed in the workplace. Goodwill agencies across the country have youth mentoring programs and have enrolled more than 1,100 young people in 2012. Goodwill also partners with local businesses to arrange for mentees to shadow employees on the job, giving them an idea of what careers and positions might be right for them.
Goodwill?s youth mentoring program serves youth in at-risk situations, helping them build career plans and skills and prepare for school completion, post-secondary training and productive work. The program has resulted in many success stories, including that of Tomas Owens. Through the Goodwill GoodGuides
