Need translation for your Chinese trade visit?

If you’re joining the East Midlands China Business Bureau and UK Trade & Investment visit to Southwest China and Shanghai in October 2010 to explore the significant business opportunities, you might want to invest in some translation and typesetting to make sure that your business cards and literature create a professional impression.

Taking in the Shanghai World Expo 2010, the visit will also explore the opportunities presented by Chongqing and Chengdu, two pilot cities for indutrial, economic and financial reform with enormous purchasing power and strong government links with the East Midlands.  Despite the global economic downturn these cities have enjoyed GDP growth of 31.2% and 14.9% respectively.

We hear that qualifying companies can receive funding of up to £750 to help meet the costs of the visit.  Find out more about how to get involved here.

Brazil and Portuguese Language

Did you know that Brazil is currently the UK’s most important trading partner in Latin America?  That might be why so many business owners are wanting to find out more.

If you’re based in the East Midlands, you’re in luck.  UKTI are holding a free half-day briefing seminar, Focus on Brazil, on 21st June 2010 at Yew Tree Lodge in Kegworth. As well as giving you the low-down on the issues involved in trading with Brazil, the event will also cover Olympic and World Cup opportunities and give you the chance to find out about UKTI East Midlands Market Visit to Brazil.

Language note: The national language of Brazil is Portuguese, being spoken by nearly 99.9% of the population.  There are no local dialects but you might like to be aware that the difference between Brazilian Portuguese and European Portuguese is similar to that between US English and that spoken in the UK and the written language follows national rules of spelling and accentuation.  Which means that, if you’re considering getting anything translated for your trading with Brazil, you should also consider the benefits of ensuring that the translation has also been localised.
