“How to write an effective business email when the recipient does not speak English.”
This new post (title above) on Linkedin gives 10 pieces of advice on the subject. Advice Tidbit No. 8, below and verbatim, is particularly intriguing, given the title and subject matter of the post.“Where possible, send the letter or email in the recipient’s native language. This shows that you respect and care for their language and culture. Using the recipient’s native language will usually be accepted very positively and will usually reduce cultural gaps or potential misunderstandings.” I guess that’s savvy advice, given that THE RECIPIENT DOES NOT SPEAK ENGLISH.
