The paper discusses how language barriers form significant problems for internationals working to promote their product or service within America. The paper examines the impact that language can have on both smaller businesses and international businesses when non- English- speaking internationals seek to do business. The paper asserts that investing time in learning the language of one's trade partner - as well as many of the mannerisms that are unique to his or her culture - remains a crucial part of business within a multinational community.

Discussion: Language Barriers and Trade

From the Paper:

"The increasingly global marketplace has created conditions through which international capitalists have had to cross cultural and social barriers in order to promote business advantages. The creation of a global trading arena indicates that there is significant growth potential for specialized businesses or products, where the offering of unique goods or services is found only within that company and no other. Without question, the most promising marketplace in terms of economic potential is that of the United States, where the investment and purchase capital from the U.S. market continues to outperform all others on the global scale: The United States creates a rare opportunity for businesspeople, where the offerings of a significantly wealthy population with a seemingly inexhaustible appetite for innovative products and services is a draw for any savvy international tradesperson.
"However, to perform in the increasingly isolationist arena provided by the United States, international businesspeople occasionally find that the American investor or customer would rather work with an English- speaking individual than one where language provided a barrier to trade."
