More Than 150 School Districts Nationwide Turn to K12Translate to Reach English Language Learners and Parents
Leading Provider of Education Translation and Localization Services Meets School Districts’ Growing Need for Cost-Effective K-12 Translation
K12Translate today announced that with the beginning of the 2010-11 school year, more than 150 school districts across the country are now turning to the leading provider of education translation and localization services to help them reach English Language Learners and their parents.
Among the new school districts collaborating with K12 Translate are Arlington Heights School District (Ill.), Citrus County School District (FL), East Baton Rouge (La.), Greater Lawrence Technical (MA), Parkrose School District (OR), Recovery School District (LA), Richfield Public Schools (MN) and White Oak Independent School District (TX).
“For our district to successfully engage our English Language Learners and parents in the school community, we must be able to supply accurate and culturally sensitive translated information,” Maria Silva of Greater Lawrence Technical School.“ Working with K12Translate enables us to achieve this goal. Not only does their team understand the challenges that districts like ours face ensuring equal access to families, they also understand the changing state and federal regulations for engaging these special populations.”
K12Translate offers translation services for any project a school district might have from small projects, such as health notices or field trip permission slips, to larger documents, such as school manuals and educational materials. The company works with more than 1,000 native-speaking translators to ensure that the finished product uses the appropriate dialects and reflects cultural sensitivities. To ensure the highest quality, all K-12 education translations are put through the same rigorous process. They are translated by a native-speaking translator, proofread and edited by a secondary native speaker for accuracy and reviewed by a K12Translate project manager for completion and final delivery.
“Every day we talk to education leaders around the country who are deeply committed to improving parental involvement in their children’s education through effective communication,” said Chanin Ballance, CEO, K12Translate/viaLanguage. “With more than 47 million U.S. residents who speak a language other than English, school districts’ need for cost-effective, quality translation services is growing every day. At K12Translate, we have designed our solution to help them meet those needs through our experienced, native-speaking translation teams that ensures culturally-appropriate translations in more than 125 different languages.
K12Translate, a division of viaLanguage, lowers language and cultural barriers to help school districts and educational institutes clearly and effectively communicate with their limited-English-speaking parents, students and communities. Through the unique combination of its Online Language System (OLS), expert linguists and integration capabilities, K12Translate offers school districts a comprehensive, affordable solution for meeting today’s increasing need for effective multilingual communications. K12Translate serves hundreds of districts across the United States, including Wake County Public Schools (North Carolina), Baltimore City Public School System, Denver Public Schools and Prince William County Public Schools (Virginia).
