comment Do ISTQB/ISEB Testing Certificates prove that someone can test?
What do you mean by langauge? English, Hindi, etc? The words you use have different meaning under different context. People need to be intelligent enough to ask for clarification, e.g. what do you mean by a "test plan"? Building a common vocabulary can be very helpful but that needs to be done within the context of the team / group / etc. Regardless if your company is full of "certified" testers or not, you'll need to understand the context of the words before it will help.

Are you saying you could have gotten the same knowledge by downloading the free Syallabus and then buying and reading the books in it?

comment Do ISTQB/ISEB Testing Certificates prove that someone can test?
So you are saying the benefit of getting a certification is to be able to understand other certified people? That doesn't seem very convincing. Wouldn't it just be easier to discuss things as a team? The second part of your statement doesn't make any sense.

Do you know how or why that specific company used JIRA? You might want to figure out if it was a good idea or not before trying it yourself.

comment Fail over testing Terminology
To reinfoce what Kate said my CEO used to refer to this as High Availability testing even though the fail-over was just one specific aspect of insuring high availability. The context depends on what's appropriate for the team.
