영어로 읽는 〈트렌드코리아 2020〉
글로벌 시대, 대한민국의 소비트렌드가 세계를 선도하면서 해외의 관심이 점차 높아지고 있다. 세계 최고의 통신 인프라를 기반으로 한 온라인 커머스의 발달과 전 세계를 뜨겁게 달군 K-팝과 영화, 게임 등 문화 수출까지, 대한민국은 전 세계 소비의 ‘테스트 베드’ 역할을 하기에 손색이 없다. 수 년 전부터, 다국적 기업의 외국 임원들과 국내 주재 특파원 그리고 해외 투자자들로부터 영문판 발행 권유를 꾸준히 받아왔고, 2020년 드디어 결실을 맺게 되었다. 영문판은 한글판을 최대한 충실히 옮기되 단어 대 단어의 직역을 피하고 글로벌 시장에서 일하는 기획자와 마케터, 디자이너, 사업가들이 보다 쉽게 이해하고 받아들일 수 있도록 조정 작업을 거쳤다. 글로벌 시장의 ‘테스트 베드’ 역할을 하는 한국 시장과 한국 소비자에 대한 이해는 글로벌 시장에 대한 이해에도 도움을 줄 것이다.
