Successfully Globalize Your Business with Translation Services

by Chad Richardson

With the internet and social media becoming more popular every day, the physical boundaries of our world start to seem smaller and easier to cross.

Doing business in other countries used to involve expensive phone calls or plane flights, but in our modern world, talking with colleagues over internet voice services and creating a business website and blog is easy and inexpensive.

A globalized world makes it easy for businesses of all sizes to open find clients and sell goods to customers all over the world. But all the world shrinks, the language gap still persists. By 2050, only 5% of people worldwide will speak English as a first language, and about 25% of the population speaks at least some English. To truly reach at least three-quarters of the population, you’ll need to globalize your business in multiple languages.

Business News Daily interviewed translation experts about doing businesses in the global economy. These experts, and we agree with them, say that poor quality language translation will give prospective buyers in that language a less positive view of your services. This is of particular importance if you have a business in a technical or specialized field. To succeed in this type of business, you need to ensure your language sounds professional and correct in other languages.

One of the most important tasks for your business is to identify your target audience.

From there, you can identify the countries your top customers will come from, the languages they speak, and the type of positions or interests these customers have. A professional translator can then translate your business’ website, blog, and other business materials using the technical language and local dialect most used by your base.
