Working Internationally

If you work internationally, there are some things you might like to consider.

Should you be using the imperial or metric system?
How are dates and times formatted?
What about numbers? Some cultures use commas, while others use decimal points. 
And what about money? The location of the currency symbol varies according to language.

It’s also important to know that gestures might be understood differently and can cause confusion, but can also cause offence.

So take care!
