As a Social Enterprise, we recognize that Language access is a human right, that our linguists deserve quality jobs, and that we must give back to our communities. Global Wordsmiths provides fair cost, high-quality language translation and interpretation services, as well as language access consulting and training. 100% of our profits are used to improve language accessibility in our region through innovative impact initiatives.
Global Wordsmiths reduces language access barriers by helping nonprofits and service providers to afford the costs of interpreters for their clients, as well as by teaching service providers all about language access. We are mission-driven, woman-owned, and our leadership team are longtime veterans of the language services industry.
We also believe that our linguists deserve quality jobs with fair pay and access to benefits. Any interpreter working twenty-five hours or more per week is given the option to convert to full employee status with health benefit options covered at up to 50% by the company, as well as paid family leave. Each of our Interpreters is given at minimum twenty-five hours of training, including Interpreter Best Practices, Written Translation Best Practices, HIPAA compliance, CPR/ First Aid certification, Act 33, Act 34 and FBI Clearances, and Mandated Reporting. We believe that providing our staff with the tools they need to succeed and a supportive work environment results in a culture that promotes quality from the inside out.
