I read the discussion in a Japanese newspaper about using English as the official language in a Japanese company.
A Japanese online trade company uses English in all their and in all their documents. The company says that they could change the employee’s attitude toward their job to globalize by adopting English as their official language.
A Japanese subsidiary of global consulting company quitted using English as their public language after their using english for one and half year. The reason was most of them were Japanese and they couldn’t deepen the discussion in their meetings. That made Japanese employees discuss after the meeting unofficially.
Our company is located in the US.
We have to change our official language from Japanese to English in order to globalize and localize us.
