Genre studies on intercultural aspects of business languages traditionally focus on established genres, such as print advertisements or annual reports. Despite the growing importance of Web-based business communication, only a few publications have engaged in contrastive Web genre analysis.

It also discusses the potential benefits of intercultural Web genre approaches for researchers, students, and business professionals.
