    這是我對這句話的理解:

    對美國的公司來說, 使用英文辦起事來會比較快.

    It is much faster for American firms to get things done when they are using English.

    至於是辦正事還是做生意, 應該不是這句話的重點, 都有可能, 反正就是把事情完成的意思.

    get through their business = go through their business = 從頭到尾, 經歷整個過程

    The word 'business' here is similar to that used in "This is not your business."

    I don't think it necessarily means 'the business'.

    For instance,the life can be much easier if everybody 'inside' the firm uses English to communicate with each other.

    In that case, they can get through the internal meeting or discussion faster if everybody uses English. Of course, it can mean the 'real' business happening between companies like selling or buying stuffs.

    the phrase is actually "get through"

    get through ______________ ( school, business, divorce, college ...etc )

    ( similar to complete something, to get over something, to overcome something ..)

    so

    get through their business = manage their business or do business

    達成比完成更生動些,主要強調是其過程不是結果

    What a surprise??? It is faster to get things done if using English. What else can be truer?

    Agree with Beth.

    Get through their business = Get their business done.

    ccording to the context, “get done”的既然是他們的business;應該是指“業務”吧。
