  1. Translate the following passages into Ukrainian


In thousands of companies today, managers are in trouble. The jobs and their careers are shipping away; things are going wrong, and they do not know what to do about it. Some of these managers can be found among the brightest executives in leadership positions today, they are not unprepared for responsibility, and they are not overly hampered by restriction. They have every chance to succeed, but they are sinking.

In so may case the root of the problem does not (i.e. is lack of experience, energy, intelligence or dedication). It stems from a factor often overlooked in analyzing the performance of executives.

It is not enough to be prepared for your job and to work hard at it; your style has to be right. The concept of style seems to be rooted in writing. The world comes from the “latin Stilus”, the pointed iron or none instrument used by the Roman to write on their waxen tablets. But its meaning has broadened to include a wide range of human thought and activity. Henry, O. (1999).

The applicable dictionary definitions today are specific or characteristic manner of expression, execution, construction or design, in any art, period work employment, and the way in which anything is made or done”.

  1. Translate the following passages into Ukrainian

Sales promotions are action-focused marketing events whose purpose is to have a direct impact on the behavior of the firm’s customers. There are three major types of sales promotions: consumer promotions, retailer promotions, and trade promotions. Throughout the world, sales promotions offered to consumers are an integral part of the marketing mix for many consumer products. Increasing importance of sales promotions as a percentage of the total advertising and promotional budget and increasing at a rate of 12 percent per year over the last 10 years, studies that strive to understand the impact of sales promotions on consumers are very important. An advertising strategy is a campaign developed to communicate ideas about products and services to potential consumers in the hopes of convincing them to buy those products and services. This strategy, when built in a rational and intelligent manner, will reflect other business considerations and objectives as well. Advertising strategies focus on achieving three general goals 1) promote awareness of a business and its product or services; 2) stimulate sales directly and "attract competitors' customers"; and 3) establish or modify a business' image.

  1. Translate the following passages into Ukrainian


Women entrepreneurs represent one of the fastest growing business segments in Canada today and according to the PARO Centre for Women’s Enterprise, Thunder Bay and region are no different.

Statistics show that three out of five small businesses launched in Northern Ontario today are started by women. These women range from new graduates to baby boomers, and come from all backgrounds. What they do have in common however, is that they are not afraid to ask for help.

“Women’s presence in the business landscape has always had an enormous impact on the economy of Northern Ontario,” said Rosalind Lockyer, Executive Director of PARO. “But what we are witnessing is increasing numbers of self-employed women in the region and a growing desire to connect with other women and resources to get things rolling,” she notes.

This year, the PARO Centre for Women’s Enterprise is re-organizing the way it services and targets the diverse and growing needs of women from across Northern Ontario. “We have really identified three core priority areas that we are marketing to women who are looking for help,” explains Lockyer. “Our programs are primarily targeting women who are ready to start a business, those who are ready to grow their business and those who are looking to build upon their current business success to expand their regional networks. We want to be a resource for women to find whatever they need to succeed and that varies on a case by case basis. Sometimes its help with business planning or mentorship, and other times it’s simply opportunities to network and be in the company of other business women,” she says.

That's what Suzan Cooper Rochon discovered through the ups and downs of launching her successful retail store, Perfect Fit Lingerie in Thunder Bay last year. After returning to Thunder Bay with her family after 20 years away, Suzan knew that she wanted to work in retail but she also wanted to be her own boss. “I knew that running my own business would be hard work,” says Suzan, “but I wanted new start in Thunder Bay that would give me the flexibility to balance my professional goals with family life.”

Established in 1989 this business quickly established itself as one of the UK’s leading conventional photographic labs, renowned for its keen eye for colour and willingness to meet Client deadlines. Based on this success, starting with a move to its current premises approximately six years ago and by investing significantly in the necessary equipment this business has gradually evolved and now provides a complete range of graphic communications and digital imaging solutions to Clients throughout the UK. Whilst still meeting its Clients needs for the more conventional photographic work on which its reputation was originally built – from R-type and C-type prints right through to 35mm projection slides, this business is now much more renowned for its large format work - the in-store displays, point of sale materials and exhibition stands it produces for its Clients across a wide range of sectors including retail, multi-national corporations, graphic design houses and advertising agencies. Its Durst Lambda digital printer, one of only a few in the UK is the ultimate technology for large format requirements. Operating at widths of up to 50 feet wide by any length this machine produces superb photographic prints onto matt or gloss photographic paper or backlit (duratrans) material.

This business also possesses a Novajet pro 50 inkjet printer. Again printing at up to 50 feet wide by any length this technology is ideal for digital files that need highly saturated colour. Its Scitex Eversmart Supreme scanners are capable of producing the very best high resolution scans in CYMK or RGB from transparencies, flat artwork and negatives up to 4500% of original size. A highly skilled dry mounting department adds the finishing touches to the production process – whether it be foamboard, foamex, card or mdf, gloss sealing or encapsulating. The output of this business has graced the shop windows of some of the biggest names on the UK High Street, the fascias of museums, art galleries and the boards of some of the biggest residential and commercial property developments throughout the UK. This business has the technology to supply 5x4 and 10x8 repro transparencies from digital files as well as 35mm presentation slides. Design and art work, digital studio photography, Canon laser copies and CD writing completes a comprehensive digital service. A high level of personal service epitomises this business, with staff always on hand to discuss Client requirements at their premises in person. The cornerstone of the success of this business however, has been the consistent delivery of a high level of customer service and a quality product at a competitive price.

  1. Translate the following passages into Ukrainian

Investors are glowing on the relative strength of the Nook and the company's digital content sales, while physical book sales slip. BN.com sales, which include Nook offerings, rose 37% compared to last year, to $198 million, showing a comparable-sales increase of 65%. Not surprisingly, bricks-and-mortar sales decreased 3%, to $1 billion, with comparable-store sales falling 1.6%. The company's college segment similarly showed declining sales and comps.

Full-year guidance was fairly rosy, with the company projecting BN.com's comparable sales jumping 60% to 70%. B&N expects retail comps to increase 2% to 3%, as it's hoping to catch sales fallout in the ballpark of $150 million to $200 million from the liquidation of Borders stores. I'm skeptical of comps rising that much since the biggest comps increase in the past five years was only 1.8%, and that was back in 2007. The company expects its consolidated Nook business across all segments to double this year to $1.8 billion.

The company's balance sheet is starting to run a little light on cash, down to $22.4 million. That $204 million from Liberty Media (NAS: LCAPA) could come in handy right about now. Digital sales are the only saving grace for the company, and the company is plunging all the profit from its retail bookstores into growing BN.com. The retail segment generated $45.5 million in EBITDA, covering some of the losses from the college and BN.com areas, which lost $69.1 million combined.
