Corporate Language Services in Houston, Spring, The Woodlands and San Antonio
Although nearly half of the executives of multinational companies located in the U.S. know one or more foreign languages; both the U.S. government and businesses often find it necessary to hire multilingual person or citizens from other countries as the result of a shortage of linguistically-trained Americans. Competency in a second language almost always complements other marketable skills and is generally considered an asset in the professional world. Possessing fluency in another language may be either a skill that enhances one’s job performance or the core of a person’s job responsibility.
Companies have many communication issues involving foreign languages, from translating employee instructions to interpreting web pages. Learning a foreign language can facilitate new business development, especially if a company is seeking to enter new markets. It can also “cement” working relationships, either with foreign companies or local employees, as it demonstrates respect and commitment. Not to mention the fact that it is easier to negotiate with vendors, engage new customers and supervise a staff if you speak their language.
