Click to view the article Mirjam Wolfrum Insider Knowledge - Researching Hispanic America
Monday, 13th April 2015 Login to MyFreePint or create an account be able to star items

Conducting research in Hispanic America will depend a lot on the country you are interested in. In this article Hispanic America means all Spanish-speaking countries from Mexico to Argentina, excluding the Caribbean states. As a general rule we can say that the more interest the global economy has in one particular market, the more information in English will be available. This means that there is more information on economics and businesses available for emerging countries such as Mexico and Columbia and only scanty information on smaller "less economically interesting" countries such as Honduras or Paraguay.

Mirjam Wolfrum explains what kind of information you will be able to obtain from English sources and when you should consider involving a local partner or a Spanish-speaking information expert.

Thursday, 9th April 2015 Login to MyFreePint or create an account be able to star items

Creative Commons licences offer an easier and more flexible way to access online content and are less restrictive than the "all rights reserved" approach of traditional copyright.

FreePint Testimonials
"FreePint's comprehensive vendor coverage saves considerable time when researching sources. It is also helpful to be able to get information on sources anonymously and without triggering a sales visit from a vendor. This frees up time for internal due diligence. The alternative would be to log onto each individual source website, have demos at an early stage etc."
Knowledge Operations Head, Global Professional Services Firm
