Information for English visitors of Dafu
With the exception the page on Premium-SMS, because I have written an English report on this hot topic,
and an interesting interview on the opportunities with USSD
there is currently no international version of the Portal to Information on Wireless Data.
There are several reasons:
- These pages are private, I maintain them in the evenings, weekends and holidays. It would afford several weeks work to translate
the more than 400 pages, and thereafter it would be plenty of work to make every little change in two language versions.
- Until now I had no request for an English version of the pages, just some questions in English.
Please, feel free to ask anything in English; I will answer you.
- I primarily present products and services available in the German, Austrian and Swiss markets.
But I imagine that for many of you some information about those markets may be quite useful …
- The CD-ROM that I sell is in most parts only in German. This "Dafu" website was created at first (in 1998) for promoting the CD-ROM.
Second reason behind this site is to make clear that I'm offering consulting
in the area of analysis (which techniques and products are suited best for your needs), market research,
designing of a wireless solution, calculation of business cases, and so on.
This consulting can be done in English as well, although my knowledge of foreign markets is not as good as
my familiarity with the German market.
The arguments for and against technologies and the structure of a price comparison are equal in every country;
just there may be differences in the available technologies and the associated costs.
Not a big task to change some numbers in an Excel sheet …
In any case you are welcome to ask me for the translation of single pages.
In this case, please send an email to Bernd Mielke.
Please understand that such requests may take some time. But I will definitely answer your mail.
If there is somebody who likes to pay me for an English version of many pages, I´ll certainly do it.
And once done, I´d continue to offer this English version, keeping it up-to-date.
But without your mail, nothing will happen …
Best regards, Bernd Mielke from Essen, Germany
FYI: Dafu stands for Datenfunk, i.e. data over radio, or wireless data.
And: Handy sounds English but is the only in Germany used word for a mobile phone :-)
