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.
For the month is in what ways? I have been trying for half an hour a day to do. Progress not feel - Cornel commented on April 7th 20 at 15:51

@Luna.Christiansen, he said - ryleigh.Swift2 commented on April 7th 20 at 16:06
@abbey, such as paid courses, if you do the floor for an hour and a half practice every day and to no purpose, then you are clearly doing something wrong. And recording courses, preferably with a carrier, you very quickly feel the change. And in principle, this option in addition to saving the Manager a lot of advantages. As already mentioned above, all docks, all the information is in English, without it anywhere. - paris.Ro commented on April 7th 20 at 16:09

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.
@Albina.Gibson, I just used the client calls Manager communicates. I understand that it is possible to remove the telephone communication? Ie, just leave a contact phone, and chat correspondence? That's just how the client will look? The website of the web Studio without the phone? - Cornel commented on April 7th 20 at 15:59
@abbey, depending on how you will work.
You must take into account the country - which will work, the site Studio website I understand to be bilingual? Or only in English? The country code you will enter Russia? What do you think, will the customer call you . To start, try to find at least one customer - usually if you are not working on the site, supposedly Upwork client is difficult to find. Because your competitors are also not idiots, besides the fact that they are dumping, with "their" work is easier.
Open any website foreign web Studio and see what kinds of communication are used. Perhaps the main connection they have through some social. network. Tipo telegrams or whatsapp. - moses_Schmi commented on April 7th 20 at 16:02
@Albina.Gibson, On Upwork, as I understand it, we must constantly offers to write in English? And how to do it without knowing English? And the site wanted to make English only and a telephone to indicate Lithuanian. - Cornel commented on April 7th 20 at 16:05
And if no Upwork? We just have the opportunity to make the registration in Lithuania. That's just what if the client wants to communicate with someone else besides the Manager? - Cornel commented on April 7th 20 at 15:53
@abbey,
That's just what if the client wants to communicate with someone else besides the Manager?

Don't mention lack of ability is willing Manager in technical matters. About the advice below: spend a little time and to improve your language skills: nonsense. Easier to pull up common questions your Manager-linguist, than to try to teach English to at least level B2.
In an extreme case - if the client is persistent, and wants to communicate with the technician, get together conference, technical specialist, interpreter, customer - and communicate. In our company, the division is working with China, the translator speaks in Chinese, and translates in both directions. Customers do not care if he knows our pretender Chinese or not. It is important price and performance objectives.

PS: before you hire a Manager-linguist - sure, but come on it or you have enough google translate. - moses_Schmi commented on April 7th 20 at 15:56
@abbey,
Web Studio from Lithuania
Here is an example of Lithuanian web Studio. They made only this website is bilingual.
we must constantly offers to write in English?

Yes, how and where you plan to look for Lithuanian customers.
What's the advantage upwork - system guarantees the bona fide customers. I suggest you look for customers where possible - the market of Lithuania, upwork, and so and so. - moses_Schmi commented on April 7th 20 at 16:08
the only site they have bilingual.

they think it's English (C) - mia.Bechtelar commented on April 7th 20 at 16:11
