At least 67.3 million people in the United States speak a foreign language at home [2018, Center for Immigration Studies]. Here in the Indianapolis area, at least 13.5% of Marion County residents use a language other than English in their home [U.S. Census Bureau].

If your organization serves the public, you’ve likely come into contact with community members who have language barriers—immigrants, refugees and the Deaf and hard of hearing community.

To better serve the community and open up your doors to more consumers, your organization can create a language access plan to be prepared to welcome and serve this large segment of our population. But the funds for this have to come from somewhere, right?

Join us from 12 – 1 p.m. EST on April 14th to:

  • Understand how language support services are priced
  • Learn how you can build a budget for language access planning
  • Avoid common pitfalls of translation pricing and understand how to choose a vendor
  • Consider building language resources into your grant proposals

🎥 We will be recording the session and sending a link of the recording out to all registered participants.

🤟 An ASL interpreter will be provided for this event.
