3 Translation Trends That Speak To International Growth
Many large enterprises now find their most prolific growth in international markets. According to their 2018 annual reports, McDonald’s, General Electric, Nike, and Accenture all derived more revenue from outside of the United States than from within. In addition, Internet World Stats indicates that over 74% of people who are online do not speak English. So whether you sell products online, in-store, or offer services, doing business in the global theater is no longer optional—and it doesn’t happen without speaking your customers’ languages.
