Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) offers a telecommunications infrastructure for inter-business communications. This paper proposes a particular use of that infra-structure to aid firms in identifying contracting opportunities, particularly where international trade is involved. We focus on two aspects of this problem: navigating the legal procedures relating to such contracts and managing the multi-lingual communications.
