Making Languages Work

for your company

  • to develop and improve export opportunities
  • to compete more effectively in overseas markets
  • to present your products/services in your clients' language
  • to raise the level of service to your clients abroad
  • to enhance your corporate profile internationally
  • to maximise your staff resources

and for you

  • to maximise your communication skills
  • to create confidence and trust with your overseas customers
  • to develop and manage business relationships with different cultures
  • to increase your self confidence
  • to enhance your negotiating power

We are often asked about the meaning of our motto, "Making Languages Work". It's simple. We believe that instead of seeing language as a barrier to doing business in overseas markets, it should be seen as an additional marketing, sales or promotional tool, either to help you get a foot in the door in new markets, or to help level the playing field in the face of local competition. In other words, we can help languages work for rather than against you.
