Education & Healthcare

We believe in building healthy, safe, educated communities. As our country grows more linguistically diverse, Eriksen is proud to help educators and healthcare providers communicate across languages.


From K-12 to colleges and universities, Eriksen helps educators deliver innovative, multilingual experiences for today’s students.

online learning solutions during the coronavirus pandemic

Worldwide, more than 1.2 billion children have been affected by school closures due to the coronavirus pandemic. Many institutions are quickly seeking ways to reimagine education through virtual classes. Even as schools reopen, many will still be looking for opportunities to incorporate aspects of online learning into their daily instruction.

Eriksen can help you make online learning accessible to students who do not speak English as their first language. We localize e-learning courses inclusive of audio, video, testing, and animation, to produce high-quality, multilingual digital courses and supporting materials. Our engineers, linguists, voice talents, and production team ensure that all the content is accurate, consistent across languages, and culturally relevant to the end user.

K-12—enabling student success

Nearly one in four public school students in the U.S. speaks a language other than English at home. Eriksen helps schools produce the materials they need to educate students with limited English proficiency (LEP) and maintain open channels of communication with parents and guardians. When concepts are translated appropriately, students better understand and retain the information. With years of experience translating learning materials, our linguists ensure that all content is meaningful, accurate, uniform, and culturally relevant.

We help schools develop multilingual solutions across print, digital, and multimedia:

  • classroom-based instructional materials
  • exam materials
  • Individualized Education Programs (IEPs)
  • parent communications
  • website content

higher education—recruiting international students and supporting communities

Translation helps colleges and universities facilitate smooth communication to prospective and existing students, parents, teachers, school administrators, and the local community. We assist clients like CUNY, Williams College, and NYU in creating multilingual resources for incoming students and their parents. And we provide the language support that institutions need to engage diverse members of their local communities.

  • marketing and admissions materials
  • enrollment information
  • parent communications
  • student handbooks and campus information
  • interactive courses and learning platforms
  • community programming
  • employee training materials


Eriksen helps hospitals and community health organizations create inclusive experiences for patients in their preferred language. Our linguists translate healthcare-related materials in a clear and straightforward manner so that LEP patients and their families can make educated decisions about their care. We deliver translations with timeliness and efficiency, while taking stringent measures to protect the confidentiality of your information.

Eriksen can translate the materials your organization needs to effectively communicate critical medical information while adhering to state and federal regulations.

translating COVID-19 resources

The coronavirus pandemic is forcing healthcare providers to rapidly produce critical new communications. Eriksen can help your organization translate COVID-19-related information such as guidelines for visitation procedures and best practices for virus prevention.

Like other public health crises, the current pandemic introduces new terminology. To help healthcare organizations facilitate the translation of COVID-related communications, we have published a glossary of 150 COVID-19 terms in 18 languages and made it available free of charge.
