16 Multilingual Phrases To Help You Connect With Your Global Team

16 multilingual phrases to help you connect with your global team

We’ve professionally translated some common phrases to help you connect with your team around the world – because using just a few words in someone’s own language can make a difference in times of uncertainty.

COVID-19 has brought massive internal changes to many global organisations. The pace is relentless and their leaders need to communicate quickly with their people, who are looking to them for reassurance during this period of uncertainty.

Phrases of support – because words matter, in every language

Over the past three weeks we’ve seen frequently repeated phrases and messages of support that senior business leaders are sharing with their teams as part of our work supporting global clients with their multilingual internal comms.

Take me to the translated phrases

So we decided to professionally translate some of these into eight of our most popular languages (French, Italian, German, Spanish, Romanian, Polish, Filipino and Simplified Chinese) – as a handy go-to internal comms glossary for senior managers during COVID-19.

How can you use these phrases?

Here are a few examples of how we are already using some of these phrases in Lingo24, but we’d love to hear other ideas that suit your organisation:

  • In a Slack/Skype channel dedicated to one country – business leader delivers the main communication in English but introduces/signs off in the language of that country using a phrase or two from the list below
  • Similar as above – to begin/end a Zoom/GotoMeeting call
  • As part of intro/sign off to written comms

Let us know if these help and we can look to translate them into additional languages or add more phrases.
