Spain Wants More Bilingual Workers in the Phillipines

INQUIRER.net, news report, Posted: Nov 23, 2008



MANILA, Phils. The Spanish Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines confirmed this week that there is a growing demand for bilingual Spanish and English speakers in the Philippines from call center and business process outsourcing (BPO) sectors in Spain. At the trade fair of the Joint Foreign Chambers, Emmanuel Gamboa, executive director of the Spanish chamber in Manila said, many major companies "have too many Spanish clients they do not know what to do with." The director of Instituto De Cervantes, the Spanish cultural center in Manila, says they constantly receive requests to provide translators not just for call center jobs, but also for translation of transcripts of records, as well as medical and legal documents. Aside from Spain, Rodriguez also points out that the U.S. is another market for Spanish-speaking call center agents. He explains, there are 45 to 50 million Spanish speakers in the U.S., even more than the 40 million residents of Spain.
