There is an increasing appreciation of the value of multilingual education in raising academic outcomes. Children who learn in their first language benefit from greater inclusivity and accessibility in educational settings. High-quality translation services can help teachers engage pupils from a range of linguistic backgrounds to ensure that education is available to all. This is crucial in our multilingual, multicultural society.
Our client advances multilingual education across a range of territories and languages. Its innovative approach engages all those involved in the education experience, opening up science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) topics to children who would otherwise be at risk of falling behind in their learning journey due to language barriers. The client serves as an enabler in making education more accessible and inclusive, with multilingual benefits encompassing individual learners, increasing teaching efficiency and effectiveness, and supporting wider economic gains.
We worked with the client to translate STEM learning and testing materials from English into four languages spoken in Latin America and the Caribbean. The translation of these diverse academic materials into multiple languages has been key to facilitating multilingual education and catering to diverse student populations. The multilingual education translations are supporting teachers to ensure that everyone is included in the learning experience and that every pupil has an equal chance to learn and succeed.
