Okay, I need to provide translation or interpretation...but what is the big deal?
You might think that providing translation or interpretation for your audience is not a big deal. Here are some benefits to partnering with a professional translator or interpreter to deliver your message!
Professional Training (being bilingual is just the tip of the iceberg!)
Including those who don't speak/understand English, those who speak/understand some English, or those whose preferred language is another other than English
Parent/Guardian involvement (parent-teacher conferences, IEP meetings)
Reach a larger audience (not only can your audience understand you, but you can understand them!)
Impartial party (not a family member or friend who may omit portions of your message or simply not have the right words for the topic)
Virtual interpreting: Can reach community members who cannot attend in person due to work, family obligations, or lack of transportation
Patients better understand their health and how to play an active role in staying healthy, monitoring their own health conditions, or caring for their loved ones
Surveys and focus groups: A better understanding of the needs and feedback of an entire community by including those whose primary language is not English
