We are in an era where nothing may ever be the same again.
Countries are being redefined as masses of people leave their old lives behind in search of new ones. As recent arrivals, they face many challenges and barriers.
But language does not have to hold them back from contributing to their new lives and country. Providing language support as they transition expedites, and eases their journey.
- Although some community members are able to provide interpretation for those staying at a settlement house, a matter of domestic violence means that confidentiality and privacy take top priority.
- The mayor of a small border town wants to increase the level of security his residents are demanding. 24/7/365 language assistance means that discussion between the new arrivals and towns people can take place with understanding.
