This article is an addition to Quite a rotten localisation of a perfect (A)pple in which we wrote about terminology errors in the software localisation of Apple devices. The examples of major terminology errors in the article account for only 10% of the most obvious errors; it is possible to write an entire study on poor terminology choices and explain it in depth on many pages in a thesis or a PhD dissertation. Since it is not possible to publish such a study on a social network, it will be a theme of a PhD dissertation in the near future. Therefore, in this new article, we decided to write about two important aspects closely related to terminology: style and consistency. The opinions and arguments presented in this article are based on descriptive and normative grammars, dictionaries and style guides of the contemporary Croatian language, on recommendations by the leading institutions for Croatian language (Institut za hrvatski jezik i jezikoslovlje[1], Leksikografski zavod Miroslava Krleže[2], Matica hrvatska[3]), available in written or electronic form, and by the leading language experts who are users of Apple products.

This trip allowed me to understand all requirements, needs, and experiences, which the interpreter needs for success in his mission of interpreting of fairs and business meetings. Here are many points, which I would like to share with my peers.
