Besides connecting people from around the world, the internet is also responsible for enabling businesses to grow. Because it helps companies connect and reach customers from all over the world, translation services are tailored to ensure that clients and business owners understand each -other despite language barriers.
Despite all of these advantages, most businesses still consider languages an obstacle that may prevent businesses from reaching from a particular market. Although many companies are fluent in the English language some countries still utilize their own native language. Translation plays an important role for remedying this communication gap.
Why are translation services so important?
About 10% of the world’s population are native English speakers. In this case, there isn’t much of the language barrier since everyone understands and communicates with each other effectively. However for non-native English speakers, speaking to English speakers or vice versa; complications can result in frustration and potentially ruin an otherwise sound business opportunity.
Of course there’s an increased rate of internet from around the world, as a result, a variety of free services have been developed and are uitlized on a daily basis to help translate web sites and one on one conversations. However, some of these services are inaccurate, or downright impossible to use.
Most developing and industrialized countries such as Germany, France, and Spain, are not accustomed to using the English language for their business correspondance. In fact, they may prefer to use their own native language instead. With the help of a translator or translation service, companies from various countries can interact and even conduct transactions with little or no problem.
Some additional benefits include being able to target a much wider audience. It would be suicide for a local business to decide to conduct transactions just inside their local area so a translation service may be able to help them promote their businesses to markets and an audience that is both hungry and eager to purchase. Whereas this language barrier would have prevented the company and the potential client from even knowing or being aware of each other.
Internet stores are stores that operate online. Although the location of the stores makes it easier to purchase items and services from, the language of the store can cause problems, especially if the store’s website is in a language that a potential customer cannot understand. While free plugins or services may make it a little easier to discern what the business is trying to offer, these are not always foolproof.
Some companies even use industry specific jargon that only the familiar will understand. Unless, these terms are translated accurately, you may be missing out on a missed business opportunity.
