Edward Trimnell is the owner of Beechmont Crest Publishing (www.beechmontcrest.com), a former translator, and author of the book Why You Need a Foreign Language & How to Learn One.
Ed is a strong advocate of foreign language studies -- especially within the U.S. business community. He has spoken and written at length about the “voluntary position of weakness” that American businesspersons have accepted by refusing to learn the languages of our global partners and competitors.
Ed has extensive experience in export sales, Latin American business development, and international project management. His recent projects include the launch of Japanese 123.com (www.japanese123.com), a site for students of the Japanese language. Links to Ed’s books and articles can be found at www.edwardtrimnell.com.
