About Us

Welcome to Brands and Borders. We take away that awkward moment when the best-selling item in your country suddenly means something else in another.

Launching a product in another country, or expanding your existing marketplace can pose real cultural and linguistic differences that you need to be aware of. The cost of getting it wrong could impact on your brand’s reputation, wasted advertising and marketing spend, neglected markets and even legal action.

Our comprehensive global brand checks enable you to make the right decision for your brand.
