Using a professional translation company who knows what they are doing can help your business expand it’s operations overseas and connect with your customers like you wouldn’t believe.

When trying to sell your products and services internationally, it only makes sense to make your product or business available in the offical language of the target country. However, many businesses still cut corners and assume that the English versions will be understood. The cost of the business lost by this error would far outweigh the cost of translation. It is so important to make anything and everything available in the language of the country that you are aiming to do business in.

The notion that most of the world now speaks English is a complete myth. It is estimated that just under 30% of people in the world can hold a conversation in English. That actually sounds like quite a lot considering the amount of people in the world! However, this figure includes people who only have a very basic knowledge of English. It also means that over 70% of the world will not understand what you are saying at all! It is also estimated that there are ‘only’ 335 million who speak English as a first language, which of course would be a much lower percentage of the world’s population. Even if customers or employees in a partner business are proficient in the English language, a translated version will have much more of an effect on them. As Nelson Mandela famously said: “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart”.
