Most office workers find computer jargon as difficult to understand as a foreign language, a survey has found.
Three quarters of workers waste more than an hour a week deciphering what a technical term means, the poll found.
The survey of 1,500 people revealed that younger workers were just as likely to make a mistake about computer language.
Just less than two thirds had sent e-mails with large attachments which had blocked clients’ systems. And a quarter of those surveyed had to ask for technical help to download information.
