Germany accounts for nearly 20% of all online sales in Europe, with $50 billion in annual sales through online outlets. Although overall sales are expected to drop by about 1% in Germany in 2014, this coincides with a predicted 25% increase in the proportion of sales conducted online, making Germany a growing market ripe for exploitation. Only the United Kingdom logs more online sales. Source: The Top Six Languages for Business

International Business Development and Management

International Business Development and Management

Thank you for your commitment to enpact strengthening economic relations between young entrepreneurs from the startup scenes of the Middle East, Africa, and Europe.

Stefan Godskesen – Director | enpact – Running support programs for entrepreneurial ecosystems in Europe and Africa

We grow our business by helping you to grow yours in the US and Germany. Business development services are our specialty – we grew up, went to school, and launched several businesses in New York, Chicago, and Silicon Valley. When you work with us, you can rely on a professional approach & attitude, a profound business development experience, and, last but not least, a native English representation. All of which is indispensable for achieving business success in the US markets.

We now live in Berlin.  We work with local native speakers to make sure your message is properly presented to the German Market.

Here are just some of the business development services you can benefit from:

Company Representation & Project Coordination

It is crucial for companies without relevant language resources to have a native English-speaking partner representing the company’s representative. The fact is that US  organizations expect to communicate in English. We are the perfect principal point of contact & project coordinator. We offer a professional, authentic communication bridge between you and your US partners.

Business Meetings

To help build strong and effective communication lines between you and your US clients or prospects, it is vital that we first understand your business philosophy, products, and services. We will learn all we can talk about your company. Once we have, we will be properly equipped to support you in business meetings, presentations, and negotiations. This approach has proven highly successful over many years.

Business Travel

We encourage clients to meet US prospects and customers on their home turf. This allows your business relationship to thrive by putting the other side at ease while allowing you to see things – literally – from their perspective. Having a native English speaker by your side to reassure both parties that language need not be an issue. We can help you throughout the process by arranging meetings, supporting you in them, following up on business opportunities, and coordinating projects and people.

Trade Show Representation

When US Companies travel to trade shows, they still expect to conduct business in English.  We are well-positioned with our extensive business background to support you in business meetings, presentations, and negotiations.

Document & Electronic Media Translations

Regardless of length, subject, or medium, we have the contacts and ability to make sure that your German language documents are translated quickly and accurately. Whether it be long or short, formal or informal, German to English, or English to German, translations are always processed by suitably qualified and experienced specialists. Typical assignments include company presentations, marketing literature, company reports, technical and commercial proposals, technical specifications, e-profiles, and website copies.

Ad Hoc Language Services

Sometimes – often, you do not need pages and pages of translation. Sometimes, you need someone to clarify the intended message of an e-mail, a letter, or a document. Maybe you need help with a phone call? At Understanding eCommerce, we do that too. Sometimes it takes us just minutes, but it can make a huge and lasting difference to your relationship. We never make the mistake of thinking a job is too small for us. We see it as an opportunity to showcase our skill-sets – and get to know you better!
