Who speaks English in Europe

Who speaks English in Europe?

Do you know who speaks proper English in Europe? Although many people in Europe like to talk to artists and do their best to understand everything, it is not obvious that everyone in Europe speaks English as their own.

You have worked very hard on that wonderful biography. You put a lot time into the text and of course you used your own language as a native speaker. It is not strange because you have learned so and above all, you're a lyricist so you write beautiful, sometimes poetic lyrics. But are you sure that all readers will understand what you mean to say?

 

The preferred language on whoisontour network is English because a lot of people in Europe learn this in school. In fact, many people speak English and there are ofcourse a few parts in Europe where English is their mother tonque. But for the most part in Europe we learned the English in school level and for some people a higher level of English is hard to understand.

 

So when you write that wonderful biography for the website, keep in mind that more people than just the Brits and Irish reading these texts. In fact, more than 70% in Europe has a different language as mother tongue. Google translate works fine but sometimes gives funny translations so that the essence of your story might be misinterpreted. In addition to this we think that most readers would prefer to understand a text directly without having to do further research.

This certainly does not only concern the casual visitor who comes to our site but especially the reader who would like to get to know you better because he wants to book you at his next event, for example. Then you do not want this potential customer to go to google translate first to fully understand your story. You make it very difficult for yourself when you write beautiful texts and drown in superlatives.

Don't let this put you off making a beautiful and clear biography. Try to put yourself in the position of someone who may have 50% knowledge of the English language and will therefore not understand all words. Make sure your texts are written in such a way that you can get the right message from the context.
 

We would like to ask in plain English to take this into consideration when you publish something.

 

It will certainly help the reader stay on your page, and ultimately make a serious decision in favor of your upcoming tour.
