Why interpretation or translation services can be missing in your organization?

According to the 2000 Census over 47 million U.S. citizens or residents aged 5 years and above spoke a language other than English at home, and the percentage of people with LEP grew from 4.8% in 1980 to 8.1% in 2000.

The size of Topeka’s Hispanic population rose by 57 percent between 2000 and 2010, and these numbers are estimated to increase.

People with LEP have found greater difficulties to access healthcare providers, legal representatives, insurance providers and others which have caused a low use of these services.

This is why high-quality interpretation and translation services are required. Accurate communication and clear understanding lead to good decisions and a more successful outcome for your client. The lack of it can cause confusion and/or lost opportunities for your organization.

El Centro of Topeka has served the Hispanic community for over 44 years; our services are designed to address the language needs of our clients, whether it is a one­-to-one interview, a large meeting or a conference.
