Doing business in Israel
Doing business abroad is always an exciting, or tense, undertaking - depending on how you look at it. There are opportunities, but there are also obstacles in the form of language and cultural barriers, and the further from home you are, the more often you’ll find this to be true.

We will be happy to help you do business successfully in Israel.
Business and private
‘Work hard, play hard’ is an expression that is particularly apt in Israel. Where we might make a strict distinction between our professional and private lives, this is not the case in Israel. You don’t have to worry about contacting someone in the evening about a business issue. The inhabitants of the country are known as being hard workers, but they like to party as well. There’s always a celebration going on somewhere, during which you can make business connections and where it’s unlikely that anyone will say that they ‘don’t want to be bothered with business tonight’. Precisely because the professional and the personal are so closely interwoven, it is very easy to get in touch with the right people.
In Israel, the most widely spoken and official language is, of course, Hebrew, but Arabic is also used by large groups of inhabitants. Israeli companies generally produce documents in English as well as in Hebrew because they do so much business with the US. Nevertheless, it is always appreciated if, for example, you have some business information, documents, and your business card available in Hebrew.
We have years of experience of translating into and from Hebrew. We also have translators with diverse specialisations at our disposal. Legal, medical, commercial, and scientific documents are just a few examples of our expertise. Feel free to get in touch with our project managers for more information. They will be happy to help you further.
