At Eriksen, we believe in supporting equitable communities with strong, inclusive schools. From PreK-12 to higher education and beyond, Eriksen helps deliver innovative, multilingual experiences for today’s students.
translation services for PreK-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 English Language Learners (ELL) and maintain open channels of communication with parents and guardians. When concepts are translated appropriately, students better understand and retain 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
- face-to-face and remote interpreting
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 and New York University 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
online learning solutions
Technology has enabled a new way of learning. Even as the pandemic subsides and students return to the classroom, the demand for online learning solutions is expected to grow.
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 teams ensure that the content is accurate, consistent across languages, and culturally relevant to the end user.
- online instructional modules
- supporting classroom materials
- voiceover and subtitling
- multimedia presentations
translating COVID-19 communications
Since the onset of the pandemic, frequent communication and family engagement has been more important than ever. Eriksen can help translate COVID-related messaging and reopening policies, so ELL students and their parents or guardians have equal access to critical information.
- reopening plans and guidelines
- safety protocols
- screening tools
- family resources
- community announcements
Why is translation important in education?
Translation helps schools produce the materials they need to educate English Language Learners (ELL) and maintain open channels of communication with parents and guardians. When concepts are translated appropriately, students better understand and retain information.
Eriksen has been a reliable partner in supporting our member districts’ translation needs. We appreciate their efficient communication and timeline adherence.
