  • Section 4.1 Review
    Culture describes a way of life that includes behaviors, beliefs, values, and generally accepted symbols for a group of people. As cultures differ greatly around the world, businesses must carefully consider the standards of each market before they attempt to sell their products and services worldwide. Sensitivity to local cultures ensures that a Web site’s wording or graphics do not offend potential customers.
    Translation is accomplished using either a translating machine or person who is trained in this skill. Machine translation is far less accurate and often fails to take slang or regional usage into account. When a business is conducting Web site translation, it must ensure that product descriptions are conveyed accurately, marketing lingo and word choices are appropriate, and the use of humor is effective and not offensive.

  • Section 4-2 Review
    Importing is the purchase or trade of goods by one country that are produced by another country. Exporting is the sale or trade of goods produced within a country to foreign nations.
    The World Trade Organization (WTO) is designed to monitor trade and help resolve disputes among its member countries. The main goal of the WTO is to promote global free trade.
    Limited communication infrastructures, inadequate funding, and unskilled workforces are the most common barriers to e-commerce development in developing countries.
    A protectionist favors government protection for domestic producers. A protectionist in the U.S. would be against importing lumber from Canada because it could take business away from U.S. lumber companies.
