But Does Not Everyone Speak English?: A Case for Business Translations

5/29/2018 by Sara Leonhartsberger

Faced with the desire to allocate sparse resources wisely, many businesses question whether inter-personal or inter-business communications should require translations. While several native English-speaking businesses have established branches in non-native English-speaking countries, this hesitance toward translation reflects the global business language. Currently, English still possesses that title, the language of commerce with a dominating presence of nearly two billion speakers. Why then, as many businesses inquire, should translations be considered in the light of English as a predominant language choice?

 

 

 

With these three factors in mind, businesses can assume that while their employees and clientele may speak English, the deepest breadth of understanding is often found in the native language. Certainly an investment, translations do indicate dedication and awareness on the company’s part—and foresight. For if English were to ever fall out of favor as the lingua franca of the business world, those who had translated their work into native languages would already be prepared on the global front.
