The importance of Choosing Gifts

  Today's world is more international then ever.People can easily make friend and do business with others from all over the world.Since we are part of the

international community,it's essential to understand other people's values and

traditions.This understanding is also important when you give gifts to foreign

friends or business partners.

  Giving a suitable gift will strengthen a friendship,or make a possible

business partner want to work with your company.On the contrary,a poorly

chosen gift may ruin a close friendship or business relationship.To reduce the

chance of giving someone a culturally "taboo" gift,make sure to do a quick

check on the recipient's culture to understand what makes a good gift for him or

her.

   It may not seem possible,but sometimes even the simplest and the most

basic gift can be culturally inappropriate.Think of a clock,for example.In many

Western cultures,clocks and watches are often wonderful gifts.In Taiwan,

however,giving a colck as a gift is often offensive.This is because the word for

"clock" in Chinese sounds similar to the Chinese word for "death,"and you

wouldn't want to give the message that you wish someone an early death.This is just an example of how the kindest thoughts and intentions could sometimes

hurt someone's feelings.

  When buying a gift for your foreign friends or overseas business partners,

don't forget to do research on the gift-giving customs of their culture.In this way,

you won't give an embarrassing or taboo gift to them.

可以麻煩有心人士幫忙翻譯一下嗎? 謝謝

    選擇禮物的重要性

    現今的世界比以往更國際化. 人們可以很容易地與世界其他的人交友或做生意.

    因為我們是國際社區的一份子. 瞭解他人的價值觀和傳統式很重要的. 這種瞭解在贈送國外有人或事業伙伴也一樣重要.

    贈送是當禮品能增進友誼 或使一個有可能的事業伙伴和你的公司一起努力. 相反的, 不良選擇的禮品會破壞親密的友誼或事業關係. 為減少機會贈送他人文化禁忌得禮物, 務必查核收禮者的文化,以便瞭解什麼對他而言是一份好的禮物.

    這似乎是不可能. 但有時候最簡單最基本的禮物都可能在文化上不合宜. 例如拿時鐘來想(說),在西方文化是很棒的禮物. 然而在台灣送鐘錶就犯了大忌.因為中文的鐘字聽起來像終字(死亡).你不會想要傳遞希望某人早死的訊息.這只是個例子. 一份好心善意的禮物如何有時候傷了別人的感情.

    當你購買禮物給外國朋友或海外事業伙伴,不要忘了研究一下他們文化的送禮習俗. 這樣,你才不會送出令人困窘或文化禁忌的禮物給他們.
