Many businesses and organisations communicate with their counterparts in Germany so they constantly require German translations of important legal documents.
Australians are some of the world’s top travellers. When they visit Europe they are likely to stay between 11 and 16 days travelling in the countries. If you are an Australian citizen you are not required to get a visa for short trips to the Schengen countries in Europe. You can just arrive at the border by plane or train and get a 3-month stamp in your passport. This is issued instantly, as your passport number provides the immigration authorities with all the information they need to know about you.
Over recent decades Germany has become a melting pot of different cultures. Some migration took place after World War 2 when migrants were needed to supply their skills to industry, while other migration has occurred as the European Union has grown. This has led to the less well-off members migrating to Germany and other affluent European Union countries to seek a better life.
It was in 2004, in the United Kingdom’s when the then Labor government decided to make the studying of foreign languages voluntary.

These days, social media has had a great effect on business customer interactions. Any companies who have mastered the most effective way of using social media have reaped huge benefits economically. A good example of this was throughout the 2016 Grammy awards when Arby’s sandwich outlet came out with a well-known joke that Pharrell, the singer’s hat, looked like their company logo by placing a tag on him in a tweet with the Grammys. As a result there were more than 83,000 re-tweets.
