Specialist recruitment services placing on-site multilingual sales staff for customers in high-growth software and B2B service industries globally

What do we do?

The Multilingual division of Adaptive Globalization specializes in managing and growing a network of the top-performing multilingual sales professionals, both in-country (e.g.. French sales professionals within France) and in-office (e.g. German-speaking sales professionals based in London).

We focus on recruiting native, bi-lingual and near-native languages speakers and have built up one of the leading global databases of multilingual sales professionals in the world.

Our recruitment team works to identify and connect with sales professionals who are proven performers with strong track records of quota attainment, as well as those specialized in selling to a particular market niche or selling a specific software or B2B service offering.  


So… what do we really do?

We enable our clients expand their sales reach by building sales teams that can expertly target new clients in new international markets.

How do we identify ‘top performers’?

We understand the complexity of screening salespeople, and know all of the nuances involved.

Sure, there’s a big difference between a ‘hunter’ and a ‘farmer’ – but there’s also a big difference between a ‘hunter’ supported by an in-house lead generation team and 30-person global marketing department, and a ‘hunter’ who is sourcing and closing their own deals unassisted.

In terms of results, there’s also a difference between booking a ‘long-term contract valued at $1m over three years’, and closing $1m of invoiced sales. Our consultants are experts in digging into the details behind sales numbers on candidate CVs to find the right match to sell your software into a new territory. 


Which languages do we recruit for?

Based on clients needs, we focus our searches on native, bi-lingual, near-native or ‘business proficiency’ in one or more languages.  

These cover 58 countries, with a linguistic concentration on:

  • German
  • Scandinavian
  • French
  • Dutch
  • Spanish
  • Italian
  • Mandarin
  • Japanese
  • Russian
  • Arabic
