Become more visible for other members, clients, and recruiters to find your LinkedIn profile.
LinkedIn is the premier social media hub to enhance your career and to locate both clients and expertise. (see more below)
Given English rules the international economy, a positive first step is setting up a secondary language LinkedIn profile this lingua franca.
Especially if you have prepared to be a player in the global interdependent economy, your profile in English is indispensable for other members and recruiters to connect with you.
Read on to learn more about the value of LinkedIn to boost your career, why creating a secondary profile in English (plus other languages!) is so important, and how a certified translator can be your career partner.
The humble social media startup from 2003 now attracts most Fortune 500 decision-makers and executives who thirst for information talent and to fuel their businesses.
Per the Jobvite Recruiter Nation Survey, 87 percent of recruiters use LinkedIn as part of their candidate search.
In fact, as Silicon Valley venture capitalist told the CNBC TV program Make It, “If you’re not on LinkedIn, you might as well not exist in this world. Everybody needs to be on LinkedIn.”
Plus, these C-Suite movers and shakers (and their recruiters) may not speak your language.
Are you missing out on an international job that you seek or more clients to buy your products and services?
A higher proportion probably does speak English, the language of global business.
Over 500 million business leaders, experts from every field, and professionals meet online to network, connect, and create opportunities on LinkedIn.
Even more interesting?
Over 120 million users got an interview through the platform.
After the US, India, Brazil, Great Britain and Canada have the highest number of LinkedIn users.
So, don’t delay in converting your LinkedIn to a secondary language.

Note: Avoid Machine Translation When Possible
A cautionary note about machine translation (MT) is warranted.
Machine translation is when a computer program with or without human intervention attempts to convert a text from one (source) language to another (target) language.
For example, a user would type a mass of Spanish text into an online translation portal and the output would be English.
Microsoft bought LinkedIn. Unsurprisingly, Microsoft’s proprietary Azure cloud-based machine translation program powers the translation of member news posts.
Machine translation is not widely accepted among human translators because conversion of text or speech from one language to another is not a mathematical formula.
While the intent – to make communication easier between all and break down language barriers – is noble, acceptable machine translation of legal, medical, or personal documents does not show high fidelity.
Plus, LinkedIn does not help members translate their profiles into another language.
You have only one chance to make a first impression. Invest in your career with certified translation by a human.

Your LinkedIn Profile in English
You’ve decided to translate your LinkedIn profile from your first language into English.
An added bonus of creating a secondary language profile is that a person viewing your profile sees your profile in the language that matches his or her primary language.
So, if your first language is Spanish or Portuguese, but a recruiter or influencer comes upon your profile who speaks English, he or she will see your English profile.
If you are in the job market, just think of the advantages you have over potential candidates when your English profile pops up!
Not only are you positioned in search engines in the global language of business, but two other advantages accrue.
First, if you plan to expand your business into another country, you have the chance to create a marketing strategy with a more global appeal.
Your profile in English will attract more eyeballs and thus you can better cater your skills to a larger segment of the market.
Further, you are freer to craft a different persona on the international stage with your profile in the modern lingua franca.
You are a serious professional with expertise to offer the international marketplace.
Start on the path to a new career or compliment your profile in Spanish or Portuguese with an English translation to amplify your connections to employers and clients on LinkedIn!
