Language Services Bridge Cultural and Linguistic Gaps:
Providing professional language services to see to the needs of non-English speaking individuals allows you to tap into various domestic markets that can significantly increase your revenue. With 350 languages spoken in the United States, it’s common to run into language barriers on a daily basis. Owning a business or providing legal or healthcare services to the public guarantees that you will interact with a non-English speaking individual. Many cities in the United States have large populations of both culturally and linguistically diverse individuals. The following data collected by the Census Bureau highlights just how much diversity there is in some of the largest metro areas across the United States.
New York Metro Area:
- At least 192 languages are spoken at home.
- 38% of the metro area population ages 5 and over speak a language other than English at home.
- One of the smaller language groups found there is Bengali, with 105,765 speakers.
Los Angeles Metro Area
- At least 185 languages are spoken at home.
- 54% of the metro area population ages 5 and over speak a language other than English at home.

Chicago Metro Area

- 29% of the metro area population ages 5 and over speak a language other than English at home.
- One of the smaller language groups found there is Serbian, with 17,490 speakers.
Being aware of the vast amount of diversity within American communities allows you to understand how professional language services can significantly increase your business. Making the necessary accommodations to break down language barriers allow you to do business with individuals regardless of the language they speak. Tapping into various linguistically diverse markets within the United States increases the number of people you reach and increases the amount of business you’re doing which in turn, increases the amount of money you’re making.
Translation services aid greatly in allowing important information to be read and understood by non-English speaking individuals. Whether its medical, legal, financial, educational or governmental documents. In order to answer questions and provide the correct information, you must understand the content; thus making translation services invaluable when interacting with non-English speaking individuals.
Poor communication or miscommunication can put non-English speaking individuals at risk in legal and medical settings. One misunderstood word or misconstrued point can create injustice in a legal situation or even death in an emergency medical scenario. Professional interpretation services bridge language gaps, reduce stress, uncertainty, and low productivity rates. Interpretation services come in various forms such as on-site interpretation, over-the-phone interpretation (OPI) and video remote interpretation (VRI).
