Spotted on the Internet: Bruno Hermann wrote an excellent article for EContent about how localization and globalization matter as much for B2B (business-to-business) and B2E (business-to-employee) content as for B2C (business-to-consumer) engagements. While many marketers and executives presume English is “good enough” for B2B, the Director of Globalization and Localization for The Nielsen Company has a different perspective. He cites Nelson Mandela’s observation:

If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.”
