Abstract

This paper demonstrates the language use in the projects of overseas Chinese companies, which shows complexity and diversity in the language situation. With in-depth individual interview in W project in Kazakhstan Branch Company of a large domestic oil and gas company, it’s found that it is more important to design an appropriate working language plan and to overcome the communication barriers leading from working language and communication. Therefore, we suggest that oversea Chinese company should focus on cross-culture management and implement human resources localization strategy. Meanwhile, dynamic language training mechanism and better communication with government department of host country are conducive to promote internal communication. Our study also proposes that overseas Chinese holding enterprise should carry out Chinese-training progressively to expand the influence of Chinese culture in the globalization context.
