As more cases of COVID-19 emerge across the country, Laguardia Translations is working with emergency and public health agencies to disseminate vital information to non-English speaking communities.

 

We understand the need for expedient and culturally appropriate translation and interpretation services in times of a public health crisis. Laguardia Translations is here to assist you in communicating with LEP communities.  We have some helpful recommendations:

  • Use available data to determine the list of languages that will require in-language support.

  • Write in plain language so that translations are accessible to LEPs.

  • Translate content on public websites, printed outreach materials, and other communications.

  • Assign a staff member to convey updates to ethnic media, preferably a member of the same culture.

  • Do not assign bilingual staff to complete translations as there is no assurance they can perform the task accurately and this can lead to grave miscommunications. 

  • Designate a language access team lead to help your organization coordinate project needs with a translation company representative.
