Establishing contact and trouble shooting
Establishing a connection with new customers
If people contact you in French, German or Italian, do you reply in English or in their own language?
How would you feel if you tried to communicate with a foreign company in your language, yet they reply in their language? People like to feel valued. Replying to potential clients in their own mother tongue – even if you only do this in the initial mail – will create a positive impression about your company even without that excellent product you’re selling.
And it won’t cost the earth.
Liaising with customers and trouble shooting
There is a client on the phone who has a complaint, but he finds it difficult to express his query in your native language?
Let one of our translators telephone the client on your behalf and find out exactly what the problem is and, possibly, how it could be rectified. A telephone call between people who speak the same language can often get to the bottom of queries much quicker and more efficiently than the most carefully devised and translated letter. And, once again: the customer will appreciate your thoughtfulness in trying to solve the problem.
Involving an impartial intermediary also takes the edge off the dialogue; and it is less time-consuming and therefore more cost-effective than embarking into lengthy written discussions.
