Census reveals Mandarin is the second most spoken language in Australia

Why it is important to adapt to today's changing cultural landscape
Australia is home to one of the most culturally and linguistically diverse populations globally, with over 300 languages now spoken in Australian homes. We truly are a nation of nations. The majority of settlement for newly arrived migrants, refugees and asylum seekers occurs within the country's two most populous states being New South Wales and Victoria
Why it is important to give your migrant customers content they can consume in language
With over 75% of the 4 billion daily users of the internet being non-English speakers, it makes sense to talk to them in their native language to ensure you're capturing as much of the addressable market as possible. We are living in a connected community so organisations need to deliver greater value to this significant segment of the consumer market.
