Marketing - Linguistics
German term or phrase: Wertschöpfung
Marketing for a (business) language training department:

"Wir verstehen Sprache(n) und Kommunikation als grundlegende Elemente der Wertschöpfung allen wirtschaftlichen Handelns im kommerziellen, nonprofit- und öffentlichen Sektor. "

I came up with this, but was trying to find something closer to the original. Any ideas?

"We understand language(s) and communication to be the underlying elements of
success in all business dealings within the commercial, non-profit and public sectors."

value creation


Explanation:
Why not use a literal translation? Marketing types must surely believe that the ultimate purpose of economic activity is to create value.

e.g. We regard... as fundamental elements of the value creation process in all...
