You create a contact by setting up a contact card for the person. You can create contact persons from existing contact companies, or you can create independent contact persons.
For example, after meeting with a prospective company, you meet the purchaser. You can create a contact card for this person so communication can be more tailored.
You may also need some publications about your products translated and after some research decide on a freelance translator. You should record this contact as an independent contact person.
