The United States and Argentina have been conducting business with each other for a long time. This partnership between the two countries is strengthened by trade agreements and various investments. These close commercial ties have created numerous opportunities for language translators to serve as interpreters at international conferences and seminars conducted by both the countries.
A Spanish translator working for The Marketing Analysts Translation Service Company based in Houston shared his experiences of interpreting at international seminars. He said that such relations between countries have created millions of jobs. The United States is one of the top five investors in Argentina and is also among Argentina’s top three trading partners. Last year, trade between the two countries reached $23 billion. The U.S. mainly exports raw materials and intermediate goods to Argentina that are used in the country’s industrial sector. Whereas Argentina supplies food products, wine, and intermediary products including pipes, tubes, iron and steel products etc.
Over time, the two countries have expanded trade which was at first limited to a few raw materials and agricultural products. The U.S is now a big exporter of machinery tools, computers and other types of equipment related to transportation and agriculture. The country which was going through an inconsistent phase as far as its economy was concerned, has now revisited its policies considering the reservations which the foreign investors had about investing in Argentina. The companies which were waiting for the dust to settle are now again planning expansions and innovations in various sectors.
Many U.S companies have Argentina included in their localization strategy. An analyst from the Houston Spanish translation of The Marketing Analysts Translation Services says that various U.S companies hired their services for website translation in Spanish. TMA assigns localization projects to in-country natives for best results. Therefore, companies localizing their website pages for Brazil were provided Portuguese translators from Brazil as there are variant dialects of Spanish spoken all over the country.
Companies who are planning to invest there in future will have to follow the marketing strategies closely for a profitable investment. There must be a thorough research and preparation done for any kind of investment in Argentina. The research must be commodity specific and in-depth. Those doing business in Argentina do it through the local agents, therefore cordial relations with the local people are very important. Moreover, the best promotion strategy is to visit the trade shows in Argentina to attract local buyers. Such trade shows are also organized in the U.S.
It is also important to engage a competent translation company to assist you in your localization plans.
