What do Lenovo, SAP and Samsung have in common?

If you answered, “they’re all technology companies,” you’re right!

But if you answered, “they’re some of the many global technology companies that have made English their official language,” you’re right too.

It’s interesting to note that Lenovo is based in China, SAP is based in Germany and Samsung is in South Korea. They’re in very different parts of the world, but they all have the English language in common.

Indeed, it’s true—the official language of these companies, and many more, is English.

This shows how important English is for information technology (IT). It also shows how important it generally is in international business today.

Many IT professionals who are non-native English speakers may be technology experts, but lack the English language proficiency needed for communicating effectively with companies like these. According to Business Insider, the CEO of Lenovo, Yang Yuan Qing, only began learning English after Lenovo bought IBM’s personal computer division in 2005.

Seeing that it’s becoming a trend for international businesses to use English as their official language, the benefits of learning English for IT are clear.

How Will Learning English for Information Technology Benefit You?
English for IT shares the same basic language structures with the English language. If you learn general English lessons, they’ll help you with IT.

However, there are also many specific terms and expressions for IT that have special meanings.

So, even if you have an understanding of regular English for business, you may struggle with understanding computer jargon—or the terms and expressions which are used only in the IT industry.

IT is a fast-moving industry with new devices (such as mobile phones and tablets) and apps being created and released all the time. You need to keep up with the latest technological developments—and the language to discuss them—in both your business and personal life. If you don’t want to be left out, that’s another good reason to learn English for IT.

In your business travels, you need to keep communications open with coworkers and business contacts via email, online video chats, messaging and other technological means.

Plus, no matter what country you’re visiting or what business situation you’re in, it’s likely that you’ll touch on the topic of IT. For instance, you’ll need English for IT to talk about the Internet connectivity in the country you’re visiting, to share data with your coworkers back home or maybe even to get technical support for your laptop that suddenly refuses to work.

Businesses everywhere use IT these days, even if they’re not tech companies.

In other words, you don’t have to be in the IT industry to use IT language. It’s useful for anyone in business! So, no matter what your current or future career plans are, there’s good reason for learning to communicate in English for IT.
