Talking Heads investigate how newly researched figures suggest that due to advancements in online and digital commerce, even the smallest UK businesses are becoming multinational.

Substantial increase in the number of small businesses coming to us for multinational translation services

A new study suggests that as a result of new online and digital advancements more and more smaller UK based businesses are able to market and distribute their products overseas, resulting in a small but measurable boost to the UK e-commerce market. The study polled thousands of UK businesses and the results indicated that a large majority of small to medium sized businesses are expanding their companies online. It seems clear that new online and mobile communications advancements are making it easier than ever for smaller, local companies to market and distribute their products all around the world. Overall the study showed UK online retail sales to have increased by an impressive 8% last year, with a huge 40% of those sales coming from small to medium sized companies.

We spoke to a leading UK translation service agency, Talking Heads, who had this to say, “We’ve seen a substantial increase in the number of small businesses coming to us for multinational translation services. It’s clear to us that these local businesses are utilising the internet to cast their net wider to connect with clients from all over the world, and subsequently putting the profit from these new sales back into their local communities.” Economics experts think that this may be the crucial boost the UK economy has been waiting for. Another spokesperson from the translation company reiterated this saying, “We definitely feel an increase in this kind of commerce will be beneficial for smaller business, and for the whole country.”
