The reasons why Mandarin is the business language of the future and how companies can adapt to it

English has been the universal business language for the last hundred years. However, since China has increasingly opened its gates to the rest of the world in the last decade, more and more Chinese companies are flooding various industries around the world. As a result, the ability to communicate in Chinese has become a valuable advantage in economic competition. With China showing no signs of slowing its expansion, this language will certainly become more in demand in the near future.

As the face of international business and the languages that play a role in business change, entrepreneurs in the business world need to use different languages to extend their reach and remain internationally relevant as a business. Eine erfolgreiche Globalisierungsstrategie muss die globale Konnektivität und die Art und Weise berücksichtigen, wie Unternehmen ihre globalen Inhalte verwalten und präsentieren. Die Sprache ist hierbei ein ganz wesentlicher Faktor.

Whether Chinese Mandarin will overtake English as the most important world language or not is still controversial. But to deny that Mandarin is the language of the future is very risky, as it already plays a pioneering role in many industries.

Chinese Mandarin is the most widely spoken language in the world. In total, there are about one billion people who speak Mandarin. The Chinese population already accounts for one fifth of the world’s population and is rapidly expanding its presence. Modern standard Chinese is therefore already an official language of the United Nations. Mandarin is the official main language in Taiwan, China and Singapore. The economic strength of these countries makes the Chinese language more important for companies around the world from year to year.

Although more and more people in the West are already learning Mandarin, it is extremely difficult to master this language professionally. Chinese is based on various grammatical rules and characters that are new and unfamiliar to us. However, with professional Mandarin translation services, companies can easily overcome this language barrier.
