Most U.S. print buyers don't find it necessary to learn the language of the country they are buying printing from, noted panelists at the "Printing Overseas" session at BookTech West 1999 held last December in San Francisco.

Donnelley in London (she oversees printing at RRD's Shenzhen, China, plant); Nancy Duncan-Cashman, production manager, Watershed Books, Edmonds, WA (the company mainly serves niche publishers); and Christine Taylor, president of Wilsted & Taylor, Oakland, CA.
