EDUCATION

LTC has a special relationship with school systems and universities in closing language gaps among students, parents, and teachers. We want to ensure everyone, from the preschool parent to the college aged student, experiences zero language barriers when it comes to education. Choose from our language training, translation, and interpretation services the solution that fits your situation. No member of your family or school should struggle with gaps that language services can fill!

INTERPRETATION

From discussing Individualized Education Programs to sessions with the school counselor, professional interpreters ensure that all aspects of the message are being transmitted. The confusion and miscommunication that arise from working with an untrained interpreter could negatively impact education outcomes and scores in your school system. In 2015, over 60 percent of non-native English speaking parents now report that it’s “very difficult or somewhat difficult” to communicate with teachers and administrators. This is up from 45% in 2007! LTC works with school districts to provide interpretation services in over 99+ languages. Whether it’s communication with teachers or school administrators, we can ensure you have a qualified interpreter in your school setting to overcome this critical problem.

ASL INTERPRETATION

Did you know that the Deaf and Hard of Hearing face some of the exact language barriers as non-native English speakers in the classroom? In fact, most Americans don’t realize that American Sign Language (ASL) is just as much a language as Spanish or Chinese, with a wide range of rich linguistic features and cultural nuances. If you have Deaf or Hard of Hearing students in your school system, whether they utilize ASL as a primary language or not, interpreting services can greatly improve communication among parents, students, and teachers, as well as improve outcomes and scores for those same students. LTC provides highly qualified ASL interpreters to work with students in any classroom setting.

TRANSLATION

Are parents in your schools struggling to understand their own child’s experience? If your school has a dense population of non-native speaking students, the chances are, “yes.” A 2015 report released results showing over 50 percent of non-native English speaking parents “never or only sometimes” receive translated documents from their schools. A further problem is that parents may have services available to them that they are unaware of. From permission slips to course catalogues to testing results, your children’s parents need to understand what your school is communicating. LTC translates documents from English into 99+ languages and ensures that these communication gaps are closed.

LANGUAGE TRAINING

Did you know that closing the language gap among your student population can start with educating your teachers on key language and cultural principles? Schools that have large immigrant populations experience both linguistic and cultural barriers, many of which your teachers may never realize exist! LTC provides cultural competence training to bridge this gap. Teachers gain the critical insight into student needs, language acquisition processes, and cultural differences needed to cultivate meaningful learning.

Thank you so much for your interpretation service – it has been a blessing to work with you and has been so helpful in a meaningful way!

Overall, I Thought The Course Was Fantastic. I Feel Like I Learned A Lot And Improved Significantly. Astrid Is A Great Professor. She Took The Class Seriously And Made It Enjoyable. She Did A Great Job Of Recognizing Everyone’s Weaknesses And Helping Us Improve On Them. She Focused On Improving Our Grammar While Also Keeping The Class Conversational. The Lessons Were Well Prepared And Focused On Areas We Needed To Learn, Not Just By-The-Book. It Felt Like The Class Was Tailored To The Student’s Abilities. I Am More Than Satisfied.

K. Corrigan

Our ENL (English and a New Language) team refers to her as a superhero and it’s no joke—she is truly amazing! Kitty does so much more than just interpret our conferences. She is someone who understands how school works and who can give us important cultural context, which is incredibly valuable.

Director of Student Services

When Covid hit we were cautious allowing anyone but the patient in the office and this is a wonderful helping hand in the matter.

Interpreting Location Manager

I have had wonderful interpreters from LTC in the past, who have done a great job providing precise and accurate interpretation. Ms. Li, however, goes far above and beyond what is expected. I’m so very grateful for her exceptional service to both this family and to ZCS.

Thank you both very much for all you do. This translation project will go incredibly far in informing many of our Veterans and their families, on the important facts and information surrounding our current pandemic.
