As the web Studio to work with Europe if nobody knows English?
A small web Studio (Manager, designer, coder, programmer) want to try to work in the Western market. That is the only problem, to read with a dictionary can do, and to speak and understand the English language - no. As an option to take a project Manager speaking. Please tell me, how is it really?
This is a very comfortable position - the kind of procrastination: I went to the English market, Yes, my English is not good enough.
At one time I had 4 lessons with a Russian tutor and Google translate to find the first client from the West. Since then 5 years have passed, and now 95% of my clients are English, I communicate with them every day and additionally take lessons from a teacher now native speaker, to put the pronunciation, and the more I study English, the more I realize that this is not my strong suit. What? I work in the Western market for 5 years, and could sit to dream all the time.
A glass of brandy accept that the subconscious is liberated and go - go chat. To communicate with the owners of the business should the business owner, not a hired Manager.

Personal opinion: better one or even the whole team to spend a little time and to improve his English. For a month it is already possible to reach an acceptable level. Himself working with Western customers and even at first, when the level was so-so, special problems did not arise. Most are very tolerant of the language barrier and will be in correspondence to chew all the requirements for the project.

Really. Have friends who sit on Upwork, and take no orders as webstudy - communicating with clients through an interpreter Deepl(translates very well, no Promta). Main difficulty is finding clients, and legal conductivity to communicate with the customer in the language of the media - not the biggest headache for you.
