【看CP學英文】蘋果於1月15日宣布徵求工程師,必須會講流利台語,以期讓Siri成為最強的數位助理。

Apple announced on Jan. 15 that it is looking for new talents, including  a “Taiwanese-speaking” engineer, to make Siri the “best digital assistant.” 

根據蘋果網站介紹,日本橫濱的團隊主要負責Siri的工程設計,其中最主要的目標就是幫助Siri理解並學習更多新語言。

According to the Apple “jobs” website, the team in Yokohama, Japan is primarily responsible for engineering Siri, specifically, in helping it understand and speak new languages.

網站上也表示他們希望員工可以為用戶打造客製化體驗,提升高度本地化體驗;因此,他們宣布此職缺可望招到有上進心、會講台語的工程師。

The website went on to say they wish to customize the experience for users and expand more locally; therefore, they announced they are looking for a “highly motivated Taiwanese speaking engineer.”

同時,申請人需要對寫軟體程式有一定的掌握度,並且需要台語達母語水準的人。

Applicants would need to have a firm grasp on software engineering skills and also need to be at a native speaker with fluency level in Taiwanese.

然而,申請人也需要有基本英文能力,因為他們將會在英語環境中工作。

However, this applicant will also need to understand English as they will be working in an English-speaking environment. 

蘋果補充道,他們正尋找具有電腦科學或資訊工程的學士或碩士學位或是於過去有擔任類似職位的經驗。

Apple added it’s looking for applicants who have a bachelor’s or master’s degree in Computer Science, or have equivalent experiences in the past.

此外,申請人必須具備良好的書面溝通與會話能力,而對「多元文化」和「文化差異」等議題感興趣也是新職員的必備條件。

In addition, having excellent verbal and written communication as well as having interest in “diversity and cultural differences” is also a must for the new position.
