Work together with a Japanese team of engineers on a project. He speaks English well, is a very competent technical specialist and is therefore expected by his company to consult with the Japanese, come up with a solution and implement it.

He looks forward to the opportunity not only to demonstrate his technical abilities, but also to gather international experience. There appears to be no serious language difficulties on either side, so cooperation is smooth over the following months. There are no obvious signs suggesting miscommunication of any kind. A satisfying solution is found, implemented and the project concludes. The German prepares to return home.

On the second last day before his departure, however, he unexpectedly discovers that a serious error has indeed been made. To complicate matters, the source of the error is traced to the Japanese. Under time pressure to correct the problem, he is able to define three possible solutions from which they can choose to correct the problem, but takes care to approach his Japanese counterpart with a greater degree of politeness and indirection than he would probably take with German colleagues under similar circumstances. He is careful to avoid implying blame, for instance, by not using the direct "you" address and softening his general wording to sound more like suggestions.
