Local Company Partners with LPGA
Language Training Center to provide language training, interpreting, translation and cross cultural training to assist LPGA with its language and cultural education efforts
Language Training Center (LTC), based locally in Indianapolis, announces a new partnership with the LPGA. The company will assist the LPGA with its language and cultural education efforts. As part of the partnership, LTC will host several cross-cultural seminars with the LPGA and Duramed FUTURES Tours players and staff, as well as provide language training to individuals or groups interested.
LTC is a full service language provider specializing in language training, translation, interpreting, cross-cultural training, interpreter training, international business consulting and language assessment. In addition to language and cross-cultural training, the company has offered use of its interpretation and translation services at tournament stops around the globe.
“We are thrilled to partner with a growing global organization like the LPGA,” said Martin George, President of LTC. “We are impressed with the work they have done under their cross-cultural program, and we look forward to helping them strengthen and expand their language and cultural efforts.”
“The mission of the Language Training Center falls in line with everything we aspire to achieve with the KOLON LPGA Cross-Cultural Development Program,” said LPGA Chief Communications Officer David Higdon. “Our organizations both share the belief that understanding and embracing cultures and languages is an essential attribute for individuals working and playing in the global community. Our players will no doubt be enriched by the services and resources that LTC provides us.”
The Cross-Cultural Development Program, under which LTC will activate, was developed with an eye toward offering language-based and cross cultural communication assistance to assist LPGA professionals as they travel the globe to compete in front of their fans, media and sponsors. The program has expanded dramatically since its inception in 2006, with the Language Training Center being its most recent addition.
