Do you think you have appropriate translation and interpretation services in your company? They may be able to translate in one language, but does that make you compliant under the Federal EEOC and other anti-discrimination laws? By misinterpreting or mistranslating one simple word, it could cost you fines and legal fees. That doesn’t account for lost time and efficiency in dealing with the issues. 

Know the Law 

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 created the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Language Access Plan to combat businesses that did not offer verbal and written communications to persons who did not use English as their first language. This removes the chance of discrimination based on ethnicity. 

While you may have one or two people on staff who are multilingual, are you sure that makes you compliant under this federal policy? 

Global Efficiency 

The world has become a smaller planet as businesses expand beyond sea and border and establish operations in multiple countries. 

Even if you haven’t gone global, immigration in every part of the world has created a demand for businesses to be multilingual. 

Compliant Language Solutions

Is your business in the medical, financial, or other highly regulated industry? If it is, you know that you must be up-to-date and compliant with all the latest regulatory requirements. Compliance means not just verbal interpretation but the written translation of all employment and legal documents.
