Well, we’ve got some good news – the business environment in changing so rapidly that what was possible only for ultra-large companies yesterday is now here for every business – small and big.
Allow me to elaborate…
A few years ago my sister-in-law had found a ground-breaking laptop cover that protected the hardware from water spills, dust and general wear. It was amazing. I literally spilled my coffee over it to test it and it was all good! She wanted to start a business importing it from China.
It didn’t work. Why? Because she and the Chinese partners could never understand and communicate with each other effectively. They both tried translators and email but it was never enough. In the end, both sides decided to drop the deal because the stress it was causing just wasn’t worth it.
Translation Equipment and Missed Opportunities
The story you just read is true and isn’t an isolated case. Many small businesses and startups have great ideas, products and resources they can’t exploit because of similar misunderstandings and limitations.
For a company with an English language background it might sound surprising that someone with a product or service worth exploring won’t have perfect English language skills, but let’s face the reality – according to Wikipedia only 1 billion people speak English. In comparison, 1.2 billion speak standard Chinese. So the odds are that your international business partners speak Chinese rather than English. Can you afford to limit your business to only the English-speaking world?
