Trying to Phone/Fax Internationally?

Richard Rinyai - The Professional Assitant Blog

Do you have trouble figuring out how to call a client or even a colleague in another country? Do you want to fax some documents to a client, but not sure if the fax number you are dialing will be correct?

I had the same trouble in the past, since I have to fax quite a few documents to clients on a regular basis. In my particular field (Publishing), it can be very stressful when your boss asks you to fax something right away, since the time difference is substantial at times and you need to figure out how to decipher a fax number.

There’s a really easy solution to this. I found a great website called Time and Date.com. This site allows you to select a city or near a city that you are dialing from and select the city or near city that you need to dial. Then you just enter the phone or fax number in the third section.

Voila! You have yourself the dialing instructions.

But don’t forget, some office fax machines require you to dial 9 before any numbers, so don’t forget that. Otherwise, you’ll get a busy signal each and every time.
