Finding customers after Brexit

Brexit – remember that?

Well, all the hoo-ha following the referendum has died down a bit. We are in the somewhat scary no-man’s-land between Vote Out and How to Deliver.  I’m really glad it’s not my job to sort that one out…

What’s the future for British businesses in this new scenario? One thing’s for sure – businesses like yours are ahead of the game. How do I know this? Because you’ve already had documents translated into French, haven’t you? You are aware that there customers who want to read about your products in a language other than English.

Where is French spoken?

French speakers aren’t just in Europe.  There are many other countries around the globe where French is a main language. Lots of them have fast-growing economies: Algeria, Canada, Rwanda, Morocco, Cameroon, Madagascar, Ivory Coast and Senegal to name a few. Around 388 million people speak French around the world. Businesses presenting their offer in French as well as English can reach a lot of extra customers.
