LEP Services

Technical Language Services, Inc., is the US’ premier provider of LEP services.  Companies regularly turn to TLS for help translating their vital documents into the non-English languages of applicable LEP groups.

According to Wikipedia, “limited English proficiency (LEP) is a term used in the United States that refers to a person who is not fluent in the English language, often because it is not their native language. Both LEP and English-language learner (ELL) are terms used by the Office for Civil Rights, a sub-agency of the U.S. Department of Education.  According to data collected from the U.S. Census Bureau and Census Bureau American Community Survey (ACS) data, LEP individuals accounted for 9% of the U.S. population over the age of five” (2011).

The number of non-native English speakers in the US increased by more than 15% between 2000 and 2010, totaling nearly 55 million people. Businesses wanting to communicate effectively across linguistic and cultural barriers need high quality translations that convey their messages clearly, and provide LEP persons with meaningful access to services in any language or cultural context. From thorough cultural and linguistic reviews to complementary expert project management, our clients value the extraordinary care that we take with every project. It’s the advantage of having a translation partner that knows your multilingual audiences.”
