Advancing Language Access
ABOUT GLOBAL WORDSMITHS
Global Wordsmiths is a Social Enterprise that provides language translation and interpretation services, as well as language access consulting and training.
Every dollar of profit we earn is used to finance our innovative Social Impact Initiatives. These initiatives:
provide free translation and interpretation to selected nonprofits,
provide quality jobs and growth opportunities for our staff, and
help service providers to build or improve their language access policies and procedures.
Our goal is to create and advance a culture of language access awareness, so that translations and interpreters will become more widely available for individuals who need them in order to access services, to integrate and to thrive.
Language Access is a Civil Right.
In Allegheny County alone:
85,000+ people speak a language other than English
1/3 identify as speaking English "less than well."
Global Wordsmiths' Social Impact Initiatives help connect these individuals to the vital services they need, using language.
