Bilingual Business Cards Templates


One of the most important things about having business cards is making sure that they cater to every possible audience who may see them. That’s why I always mention that you should put as much pertinent information on your business cards, like social networks, phone numbers, emails, etc. Just last week, discussing business manners in other countries, I wrote about the idea of making a country specific business card:


“Your Card – If you are bringing business cards with you, it may be a good idea to change the language on the cards to the country’s language if it isn’t English. This is particularly important if you travel to this country on a regular basis. Having business cards in the local language will show a deep respect for the associates you have.”

If you do a lot of travelling for your work, this may be a good idea. However, one school district in Rialto, California, is opposed to the idea of bilingual business cards, according to a story in the San Bernardino County Sun:

According to the article, objecting members of the board said that having bilingual cards might be seen as offensive. If you expect a Spanish speaking person to not be able to understand an English business card, they may be personally offended.

Having bilingual business cards is definitely not something that should be seen as offensive, but as something including as many people as possible. Montes is going ahead with his plan for the cards anyway – he’ll just be paying for them himself.
