Cross-cultural comparison of online job advertisements
Irena Gorenak, Sonja Mlaker Kač, Sara Orthaber, 2010, original scientific article

Abstract: Job advertisements should reflect an ideal candidate that the company is looking for. This is especially important for logistic companies which - due to their service-oriented nature - are inseparably connected with their employees. This paper aims to compare and analyse Slovenian, German and British online job advertisements from the field of logistics. Furthermore, this paper will discuss the structure and special features of job advertisements whereby relevant cultural differences between the three countries will be emphasized. With this in mind, differences in understanding logistics as such will be identified and cultural differences regarding employees' characteristics further discussed. For this purpose, six online job ads published in October 2008 in different online media in Slovenia, Germany and the UK will be qualitatively analysed. In the analysis relevant cross-cultural differences and similarities will be addressed and their implications further discussed.
Keywords: online recruitment, cultural differences, logistics, Slovenia, Germany, UK

Detecting and preventing plagiarism in a foreign language e-learning course
Sara Orthaber, 2009, original scientific article

Abstract: E-learning is becoming an increasingly common if not an essential strategy in academic institutions and the Faculty of Logistics of the University of Maribor, Slovenia is no exception. However, this new teaching mode also brings about new forms of academic misconduct, which is the main topic of this paper. The first proposed methodological approach was to take into account students' general experience, motivation and satisfaction with e-learning from previously undertaken studies. Then students' submitted assignments from the 8-week foreign language course English in Logistics were analyzed with the objective of finding whether the perception of intellectual property rights of those students who had been warned has changed and what the reasons for plagiarism might have been: did plagiarism attempts somewhat diminish, or did students deliberately continue to copy from the internet? What reasons for plagiarizing other than stress resulting from potential problems of integrating contemporary technology into the learning process may there be?

Understanding the importance of internal integration and its implications for intercultural business communication
Darja Topolšek, Sara Orthaber, 2011, original scientific article

Abstract: The extent to which relationships in organizations are co-operative depends on the level of internal integration between functional and departmental groups. These relationships become even more critical in international businesses as well as in geographically dislocated subsidiaries. Cultural characteristics and different factors which managr, facilitatr and/or hinder internal integration present the basis for studying internal integration of different functions. Therefore, the following paper discusses various theoriesof internal integration and its role in organizations. More specifically, it focuses on logistics and marketing functions and explores studies that have investigated and examined the levels of internal integration of logistics and marketing functions. With the objective to identify potential implications, high/low levels of internal integration may have on intercultural communication which occurs in international business practices, the most prominent cultural frameworks are presented to identify implications different levels of internal integration may have for intercultural communication, in particular between Slovenian companies and their foreign subsidiaries.

Relationship between culture and the level of internal integration of logistics and marketing functions - an explorative analysis
Sara Orthaber, Darja Topolšek, 2012, original scientific article

Abstract: Cultural characteristics and different managerial aspects that may influence the degree of internal integration through facilitating and hindering factors play an important role in exploring internal integration of different functions. The following paper examines the relationship between cultural characteristics of logistics managers of different nationalities and inter-functional integration of companyʼs logistics and marketing functions. More specifically, it aims to investigate whether and to what extent cultural traits and nationalities of logistics managers may influence the level of integration of logistics and marketing functions. For this purpose, the level of internal integration and the role of national cultures will be examined. Using quantitative research methods, the relationship between culture and the level of internal integration between logistics and marketing functions will be examined. A small data sample for the research was collected from Slovenian parent retail companies and their foreign subsidiaries. The findings suggest that there is a connection between the level of integration and cultural characteristics of employees from logistics function.

Anglizismen im berufsbezogenen DaF-Unterricht - Die Untersuchung von Anglizismen im Bereich der Luftfahrt
Sara Orthaber, 2012, professional article

Abstract: Fremdsprachenkenntnisse sind heutzutage erforderlich, insbesondere in einem Land wie Slowenien. Nicht nur aufgrund dessen, dass man mit der slowenischen Sprache geographisch begrenzt ist, sondern da auch in der Mehrzahl der ausgeschriebenen Stellen Fremdsprachenkenntnisse erwünscht sind. Aus diesem Grund werden auch im tertiären Bildungssektor mindestens zwei berufsbezogene Fremdsprachen angeboten, von denen die Studenten eine wählen müssen. Und obwohl sich die Meisten für Englisch entscheiden, ist in den letzten Jahren ein zunehmendes Interesse an Deutschkursen zu verzeichnen. Ungeachtet dessen ist heutzutage ein gewisses Fundament an Englischkenntnissen praktisch unerlässlich, was auch beim Unterrichten des Faches Deutsch als Fremdsprache aufgefallen ist, wo in fast allen Kommunikationssituationen der Arbeitswelt, insbesondere aber in der Fachterminologie, ein zunehmender Einfluss der englischen auf die deutsche Sprache festzustellen ist. In diesem Beitrag wird der Gebrauch von Anglizismen in Lehrmaterialien zum Thema Luftfahrt untersucht, die an der Fakultät für Logistik beim DaF-Unterricht verwendet werden. Zu diesem Zweck werden zuerst die für den Unterricht relevanten Anglizismen aufgeführt und diskutiert. Im Anschluss erfolgen Implikationen für das Lehren und Erlernen der berufsbezogenen Fremdsprache.

´Thank you in advance´: Slovenian request emails and responses
Sara Orthaber, 2017, original scientific article

Abstract: Communication through email represents one of the most important forms of business communication, not just within a company but also externally with customers. The paper examines email interactions between the agents representing a Slovenian transport company and its customers. More specifically, the study examines specific aspects and elements of email production in a Slovenian customer service setting. It is hoped that the findings will help enhance the communication skills of learners of Slovenian as a foreign language and students of translation and increase their cultural awareness and their knowledge of technology-mediated customer service communication. Moreover, the findings could increase students' understanding of the pragmatic motivations behind interactants' linguistic choices.
