Default Misunderstanding Emails

Direct quote from my son who has a partner in another office - - -

Emails are the source of most misunderstandings in the business world.
Every (yes, every) time we have simple discussions about money with the Dutch office by email it ends up with us having a council of war, only to decide to give them the benefit of the doubt. It is always down to poor wording.

And Text is probably worse. Face to face is the best answer.

Are they speaking the same language or is there some sort of English to Dutch, Dutch to English going on?
