INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATION FOR BUSINESS, Second Edition, examines the basis for culture, reviewing the work of social scientists, cultural anthropologists, and global managers on this emerging topic. Definitions of culture, issues of cultural change, and how cultures adapt are included, along with practical examples, case studies, and illustrations of how cultural issues are managed both domestically and internationally. Throughout the text, emphasis is placed on understanding eight dimensions of culture: context, identity, learning, environment, change, time, authority, and achievement. The text begins by providing a foundation for understanding cultural perceptions and stereotypes, and then focuses on understanding frames of reference; language codes, symbols, and context; and verbal and non-verbal communication. Next, it highlights issues of cultural identity regarding individual and collective identity, and examines the effects of culture on power and authority. Finally, it provides practical applications for intercultural communication. This book can be bundled or customized with any of the O'Rourke Modules or with any of our best-selling Business Communication books. Cases and solutions will be posted online.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2005 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, grade: 2,0, University of Heidelberg, 106 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This research examines the relevance of intercultural communication for international marketing, focusing on corporate advertising via the Internet. The first chapter outlines the importance of cultural competence in the field of translation by analyzing the role of modern translators as language, culture and information mediators. Reference is also made to a relatively new field of translation, namely localization. Chapter 2 deals with different definitions and concepts of culture, and various approaches concerning which elements comprise it. Furthermore, it analyzes important culture-related terms also influencing intercultural communication, such as language, cultural differences, culture shock, ethnocentrism and stereotypes. The third chapter is devoted to communication, its components, forms and media. Chapter 4 illustrates the significance of intercultural communication by examining different intercultural aspects and concepts, and providing information on a definition and history of the term and on important intercultural communication theorists. Chapter 5 focuses on the phenomenon of globalization, both in cultural and economic terms. The next chapter refers to the significance of communication and culture skills for international managers and to key competences of international management that can be trained. Chapter 7 explores the broad field of marketing, emphasizing corporate identity and the elements comprising it, essential marketing strategies implemented by multinational companies and the international marketing principle “Think global, act local”, indicating how intercultural communication can determine the success of marketing activities. The last part of this chapter approaches the debate “standardization versus differentiation”. Chapter 8 is dedicated to advertising as a form of communication, common advertising strategies illustrated through concrete examples, cultural elements that advertisers should take into consideration and the two variants of international advertising campaigns: standardized versus culture-adapted advertising. The last chapter, after giving an insight into the history of the Internet and its multiple functions, explores its use as an instrument of international marketing communication and public relations, and as an advertising medium, focusing on corporate websites of multinational companies.

Intercultural communication competence is an indispensable ability for people to interact appropriately and effectively across nations and regions in the globalized world. Competent intercultural communication enables people to reach mutual understanding as well as reciprocal relationships. In recent decades, considerable progress has been made in the research of intercultural communication competence. However, due to its complexity, many problems remain unanswered and need to be addressed. This book seeks to conceptualize intercultural communication competence from diverse perspectives, explore its re-conceptualization in globalization, and investigate its development in cultural contexts and interaction scenarios. A group of leading international scholars in different academic disciplines join to map out a comprehensive picture, providing an in-depth and up-to-date work on intercultural communication competence. The book adopts an interdisciplinary approach and enhances readers’ understanding on the concept of intercultural communication competence. It is a useful source for educators, researchers, students and professionals.
