I've recently completed my MSc Computer Science from a UK institution, and have moved back to the US to begin work. I write in my spare time, enjoy cooking, and apparently am addicted to signing up for SE sites :).

I'm well on my way to becoming the UX expert for my company's regional SQA division -- which is sad because the sum total of my formal training in the subject is one course at university XD but I'm learning rapidly.

comment Is it ok to use different fonts for translated versions of the same website?
If your client has specifically requested a consistent presence, which you indicated that they have, and has gone so far as to create a specific font to use, you will want to ask this question to them. They might care more than the average user, and if it makes them happy to spend more money expanding the font, so be it.

comment Good way to make loyalty card app
I've seen this done with a QR code on a stand kept below the counter. You had to ask for the code, and the clerk was responsible for not letting you scan unless you bought something.

comment Has anyone had any experience with inputs similar to apple's calendar “create quick event”?
I suspect the same sentence parsing is used in their voice-activated reminder creation system. "Remind me to do X [today/tonight/tomorrow/at 3/tomorrow night at 7/when I get home/etc]" seems to work pretty seamlessly

comment In user instructions, which term is more widely understood to mean a character A thru Z, letter, alpha or something else?
An alphabet is a set of characters. I was pointing out that you're typically either talking about the name of one set (like Latin or Cryllic) or the contents of one (like the string "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvqxyz") when you use the term "alphabet", not a single character

comment In user instructions, which term is more widely understood to mean a character A thru Z, letter, alpha or something else?
"and begin with an alphabet" so, abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvqxyz23453? or are we talking Cryllic123? "Alphabetical character" would be proper but long

comment Can I put the same share buttons on the top and bottom of a post?
This is probably the best solution. Sometime I'll read something in my reader, like it, then click through to the main site to share, or halfway through an article will find something that makes me want to share it.
