Kelly Kettle ignites in new markets

Festival season is upon us! If you fancy a nice hot cup of tea in your tent at Glastonbury or Leeds, then the Kelly Kettle is for you. With a camping stove base, and a kettle attachment that fits on top, it boils water in just 3-5 minutes – using only a handful of sticks, dry grass or even pine cones as fuel! Kelly Kettle approached Web-Translations for assistance moving into new markets through their eCommerce website, which allows outdoors enthusiasts to purchase the unique products online. Kelly Kettle products are also available at many outdoors stores in Europe, North America, Australia and Japan.

Business Etiquette Around The World

Each country has its own variety of cultures and traditions, and this is no different when it comes to business. What may be considered normal in one country could be classed as rude or offensive somewhere else and your behaviour could make or break a deal. Do your homework before attending any international meetings so you can make the best possible impression. Japan Japan is very conservative and this is reflected in their approach to meetings. To make the best impression dress smartly, preferably in a dark colour. Ladies should try to tone down their makeup and avoid high heels such as stilettos. After you have made a great first impression, remember to offer out your business cards and do so with both hands. For that extra special touch, translate the reverse of your business card in to Japanese.
