This study focuses on the impact of language skills on international opportunity recognition and exploitation. Data were collected from Finnish food industry companies employing a mixed-methods research strategy. It was found that the linguistic knowledge of the decision-maker is related to international opportunity recognition and exploitation, potentially creating a ‘knowledge corridor’ that either encourages or prevents international opportunities from being seen. A ‘matching linguistic knowledge’ construct was developed to investigate this knowledge corridor. The findings indicate that matching linguistic knowledge steers managers in their recognition of international opportunities, but the importance of the knowledge corridor has decreased with the emergence of Business English.
