With the rapid development of the world economy and science and technology, the proportion of the international market has been constantly increasing and increasing companies have formulated their own internationalization strategies. Taking into account the geographical differences, many international companies tend to open offices in different business districts. This places a high demand on office staff, especially in terms of language, because of the need to deal with a diverse client base around the world. To choose office place, we make a prediction on the trend of global language by Growth curve prediction method. Taking the strategy for modulating the weight of each criterion, we construct future world with model to simulate suitable office site. Finally, these statistics could help us simulate the future trend.In order word, our models have high stability,high error-tolerant rate and extensive applicability.
