What I would say in ths situation, is that before changing over,
we should simulate the effect by changing the business' official
language to Spanish. Everyone has to speak only Spanish, all
documents need to be converted to it, everything new needs to be
done in it.

It's a great language, has been around longer than English,
simpler writing structure, and it's used in more places.

That would have about the same effect as what they are wanting
to do. How much disruption can it cause? It is in use
everywhere.
