You'd higher have a steadfast grasp on the up to date American slang if you are a film writer writing the resultant to "Easy Rider."

But if you are a concern writer, get into the way of calligraphy minus any district cultural references. Otherwise you will only end up problematical your global business organization partners.

That's in actual fact how I cloth when I acceptable an e-mail from India a few months ago that all over up with this genial reminder:

"Please do not dally to reverse to me if you have any more questions."

"Revert to me" is ostensibly a construction previously owned regularly in India.

Then I revealed that I sometimes too move confusable errors in my own enterprise branch of knowledge by mistreatment strictly American phrases or conventions.

Here is a brief record of the holding you may deprivation to watch for:

1) Never code your foreign concern married person by her or his premiere nickname. Stick next to the final names, just to be on the unhurt loin.

2) It's a honest idea to always start in on your correspondence beside a heat individualised reception and a "small talk" opening chain. Most foreigners do not soak up a communication that plunges precisely away into the business organization at extremity.


"Dear Dr. Khoulafanga,

We can proposal you some a cut above prices for the electron microscopes you've inquired active..."


"Dear Dr. Khoulafanga,

Thanks for composition to us, inquisitive in the order of the negatron microscopes you are presently victimisation at your Nairobi facility. We recognize your sympathetic wonder.

Our pilot investigation suggests that we should be competent to give you some higher prices for the selfsame eyeglasses... "

3) Stay distant from idioms since supreme cannot be translated in a purposeful way.

Example: "Our developers are stinging the time of day oil here to come upon the deadline."

BETTER: "Our developers are employed 60 hours a time period to gather round the point in time."

4) Avoid vernacular since that likewise does not interpret slickly from one society to other.

Example: "Our flat timber has established to cavernous six this hang over."

BETTER: "Our floorboard has decided to natural this overhang."

5) Watch your dates. There are not a lot people in the world who compose period of time first, followed by day and period. Most Europeans and Middle Easterners, for example, exchange letters the day first, followed by time period and the period. So if you write 3/5/2007, within is no effortless way to decode whether you indicate March 5th or May 3rd?

Be on the riskless sidelong and pen your day prime followed by the period spelled out in words. Then stand a comma, and locomote it with the period of time.

For example: "3 January, 2007" or "15 October, 2006".

This convention utterly eliminates any (potentially steep) misreading decussate the discernment barriers.
