Effects on the European economy of shortages of foreign language skills in enterprise (ELAN) ( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"A significant amount of business is being lost to European enterprise as a result of lack of language skills. On the basis of the sample, it is estimated that 11% of exporting European SMEs (945,000 companies) may be losing business because of identified communication barriers. Analysis of the findings from the survey identified a clear link between languages and export success. Four elements of language management were found to be associated with successful export performance: having a language strategy, appointing native speakers, recruiting staff with language skills and using translators and interpreters. There could be very significant gains across the whole EU economy if all exporting SMEs employed these techniques. English is a key language for gaining access to export markets. However, the survey results suggest that the picture is far more complex than the much-quoted view that English is the world language. Russian is extensively used in Eastern Europe as a lingua franca (along with German and Polish). French is used to trade in areas of Africa and Spanish is used similarly in Latin America. Longer-term business partnerships depend upon relationship-building and relationship-management. To achieve this, cultural and linguistic knowledge of the target country are essential." -- Executive summary
ELAN : Auswirkungen mangelnder Fremdsprachenkenntnisse in den Unternehmen auf die europäische Wirtschaft ( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in German and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"Den europäischen Unternehmen gehen infolge mangelnder Fremdsprachenkenntnisse zahlreiche Aufträge verloren. Auf der Grundlage einer Stichprobe wird geschätzt, dass 11 % der exportorientierten europäischen KMU (945 000 Unternehmen) wegen dieser Kommunikationshindernisse möglicherweise Aufträge verloren gehen. Die Untersuchung zeigt, dass ein klarer Zusammenhang besteht zwischen Fremdsprachenkenntnissen und Exporterfolgen. Es wurden vier Faktoren des Sprachmanagements ermittelt, die mit erfolgreicher Exportleistung zusammenhängen: strategisches Herangehen an die mehrsprachige Kommunikation, Einstellung von Muttersprachlern, Einstellung von Mitarbeitern mit Fremdsprachenkenntnissen und Einsatz von Übersetzern und Dolmetschern. Würden alle exportierenden KMU eine oder mehrere dieser Methoden einsetzen, so könnte die gesamte Wirtschaft der EU in erheblichem Maße davon profitieren. Für den Zugang zu den Exportmärkten kommt dem Englischen besondere Bedeutung zu. Die Ergebnisse der Untersuchung deuten allerdings darauf hin, dass die Realität viel komplexer ist, als die oft zitierte Ansicht, dass Englisch die Weltsprache schlechthin ist. In Osteuropa ist Russisch weit verbreitet (neben Deutsch und Polnisch). In weiten Gebieten Afrikas ist Französisch die Handelssprache und Ähnliches gilt für Spanisch in Lateinamerika. Voraussetzung für langfristige Geschäftspartnerschaften ist der Aufbau und die Pflege von Beziehungen. Dafür sind Kenntnisse der Kultur und Sprache des Zielmarktes unentbehrlich." -- Kurzfassung
