Business Spanish / Español para negocios

In the last few years, Spanish has become a fundamental language to be used in the world of business. This is not only because of the fact that it is one of the most spoken language in the world, but also because some of the most internationally influential companies on a global scale are based in Spain and Latin America. It is also true that a growing percentage of the US population is Hispanic, which means that many of them may need to use the Spanish language to conduct business dealings as they are not strong enough in speaking English to agree on deals.

In this section, you will find the most useful Spanish business vocabulary along with its translation, all of which we have gathered here for you. It is a broad and practical list designed for users to find the most relevant business terms, and while it is by no means comprehensive it should give you a lot to go on as you make a good start at figuring out what to say and when in your business meetings.
