Quality education begins with communication. Millions of people in US schools do not speak English fluently and are of Limited English Proficiency (LEP) or are English Language Learners (ELLs). This includes parents, students, and community members. Language Access is key to success in education. Without translators and interpreters to assist educators, many students are left at a disadvantage. PGLS offers language services in more than 200 languages and dialects that leverage educators’ ability to offer the highest quality education to all students, including K-12 and higher education.
Schools have many uses for interpreters in settings such as assemblies, parent-teacher conferences, graduations, and meetings. Our interpretation services include:
Over-the-Phone Interpretation (OPI)
In-Person Simultaneous Interpretation
Individualized Education Programs (IEP)
PGLS will help you meet the requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) through Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) for students with disabilities. We offer IEP solutions through both interpretation and translation, ensuring that your programs are custom-designed to meet the needs of each individual student.
Mass communication through publications, websites, emails, and more is only effective if the recipient is able to read and understand the document. When a K-12 school or higher education institution needs a document translated, the final product must be completed on time at the highest quality possible, and it must fit localized needs. PGLS does all of this by helping schools translate documents such as:
financial aid information
health and safety updates
and much more
