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 on November 12th from 12 – 1 p.m. EST 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

🎥 This event will be recorded and a link to the recording will be shared with all registered participants.

🤟 An ASL interpreter will be provided for this event.

🤝 This event is free to attend, but we request that you consider an optional donation to our nonprofit partner for this event, American Red Cross Indiana Region.
