Global Communication The Way The Deep

Friday 25 October Monday 3 June Whenever you are communicating with someone in their language, it is your responsibility to ensure that the words you use are correct. Similar Artists Play all. You should know, for example:.

Many business people now receive up to emails each day, which is too many to read carefully and respond to in a thoughtful manner. The result is that many emails are merely scanned before being deleted, or filtered away by software, never to be even read. Business people must be diligent in trying to ensure that the most important emails don't get lost in the volume. A legitimate query from a potential new client could get mistaken for spam.

An important question from a business partner could get lost in a series of replies in an unrelated thread of messages. Additionally, when sending an email, business people have no assurances that the message will be received and read by the recipient. Another complication in global communication for businesses is overcoming the disadvantage you have when competing with local companies.

While face-to-face meetings can be replaced with video conference calls, subtleties of body language can't always be captured on video. A frown from an executive during a presentation, for example, is a crucial piece of visual information that you could easily miss on video, particularly when that executive may be off-camera at that moment. There are many other pieces of important information that get lost when you are interacting with someone across the globe.

When doing business locally, it's usually quite easy to discern between a company located in the business district, whose ads you have noticed on billboards and local radio for a number of years, compared to a business located in an apartment building on the outskirts of town. On the other hand, when you are approached by a company located in a different country, you may not have much to go with beyond what they state on their website.

Finding out more about a foreign firm usually requires much more time and research. On top of that, you may also need to spend more time researching the region where a foreign company is based. You should know, for example:. Despite the risks, operating a business on a global level has many benefits that far outweigh those risks.

Not only does doing business on a global level open up new markets for selling products and services, it can give you access to resources and talent that may not be available locally. While every business is different, it's worthwhile to note that Coca-Cola didn't stop selling their products worldwide because of a few translation problems.

As the world has continued to become more tightly connected and communication technologies have continued to evolve, the benefits as a whole can be illustrated by the market penetration of these new technologies themselves. The more globally connected the world has become, the faster people have adopted new global communication technologies. The telephone, which was the greatest global communication technology of its time, replacing the telegraph, took 71 years to reach a market penetration of 50 percent of homes.

Electricity took 52 years to reach the same penetration. Radios followed, taking 28 years. Color televisions took 18 years. Personal computers took only 19 years. Cellphones took 14 years, while internet access took only 10 years to reach 50 percent of all homes in the U. Because a growing number of companies are already competing on a global level, any business that wants to compete with them must also open its channels to communicate effectively with the entire world.

Before attempting to do business with people in another country, organizations should become familiar with cultural differences that can arise in different contexts.

It may be necessary to hire consultants who are experienced with that country. For large ventures, like a major product launch in a different country, Debra Davenport of Purdue University recommends hiring a team of local specialists from that country, including:.

Each of these specialists is able to give insights into local laws and customs to help ensure the new venture doesn't result in unnecessary complications or liabilities that could destroy a company's reputation before they even get started. Small businesses may not have the budget to bring on a team of specialists. However, they still need to be familiar with local laws, culture and language. Whenever you are communicating with someone in their language, it is your responsibility to ensure that the words you use are correct.

This includes advertising and marketing. Over the past several decades there have been many large and successful companies that have made mistakes when translating what they wanted to say to a different language, often with offensive, or even hilarious, results. Here are a few examples of some translation misfires:.

A common way small businesses first become involved in global operations is by hiring a firm or consultant from another country, like a company in the United States hiring a software development team in India with more affordable rates than those who are available locally.

Throughout their initial conversations, the American manager may be focused on the project requirements, timelines and deliverables. The Indian manager, on the other hand, may be more focused on building a solid relationship with a new client. After the American manager carefully explains the project requirements and deliverable in terms she believes are easy to understand, the Indian manager has many questions but does not ask them.

Instead, he says, "Yes," and agrees to take on the project. Weeks later, when the Indian team completes the first phase of the project, it does not meet the Americans' expectations and the relationship falls apart.

This was caused by a cultural nuance, in which the word "Yes" did not necessarily mean that the Indian manager understood everything and was in agreement. It was simply a word that he used to move the relationship forward. Had the American manager understood this, she could have invested more time in fostering their new relationship before assuming that they were in agreement, thus avoiding the problem. Increasing communication from a local to a global scale has many ramifications beyond cultural pitfalls and language barriers.

One example is the increase in emails and other messages people receive every day, many of which are sent from different time zones, often when the recipient is not even awake to read them in a timely manner.

Many business people now receive up to emails each day, which is too many to read carefully and respond to in a thoughtful manner. The result is that many emails are merely scanned before being deleted, or filtered away by software, never to be even read. Business people must be diligent in trying to ensure that the most important emails don't get lost in the volume.

A legitimate query from a potential new client could get mistaken for spam. An important question from a business partner could get lost in a series of replies in an unrelated thread of messages.
