What companies need to know about language services
Languages are a vital component of an increasingly connected world. Professional spoken and written language services can make the difference between a successful project and a total disaster. In this webinar we will explore the outlook for language needs in the U.S., discussing the different services offered by professional linguists and how this impacts access for people with limited English proficiency (LEP).
We will also explore the practical applications of language services for various industries, such as law, the financial sector, healthcare, and advertising. Finally, we will discuss where you can find providers, choosing the right one, and tips for working with a language services provider so that even businesses that don’t currently require language services will be prepared for a successful experience when the need arises.
- Learn about the present and future outlook for language needs in the U.S.
- Explore practical uses of translation and interpreting in various professions
- Discuss how to search for, choose, and work with a language services provider
