Is English Still the Lingua Franca of the Business World?

English has served as the default language of communication in the business world for a very long time. But with more people traveling, migrating, and learning new languages, English may soon lose its place as the lingua franca in business. Plus, with AI and machine learning able to translate various languages on the fly, the need of a single “bridging” language may be gone altogether.
