Business in Korea is mainly conducted in Korean. Sure, you’ll find many Koreans who speak good English. But if you leave it to your Korean contacts to accommodate you in English for everything, you’ll find yourself at a disadvantage over time. Not only should you be able to access your own information about the Korean market without having to have it spoon fed to you through others, but you’ll also communicate critical messages and information more effectively if you can express them in Korean.
Effective business results require language resources that you can trust
A first step in getting up to speed on doing business in Korea is simple. Get eight free business reports just by signing up for my Korean Business Tips Newsletter. These business reports includes everything from an introduction to Korean business etiquette and Korean company hierarchy, to business cards, marketing principles, and business gifts.
Once you get these basics down, you’ll still have work to do. If you’re selling in the Korean market, you need to have some marketing materials, product manuals, and other critical documents translated to Korean (what I term, Korean business translation). To get up to speed on the latest information in your market, you may find that Korean business intelligence support can help. And in the course of your work, you’ll have business contracts, property leases, and even licensing agreements and other documents requiring Korean legal translation services.
