Education

From K-12 to colleges and universities, we help educators respond to the needs of their communities. Whether making public school exams accessible across languages or helping colleges engage international students, Eriksen helps educators deliver innovative, multilingual experiences for today’s students.

online learning solutions during the coronavirus pandemic

Worldwide, more than 1.2 billion children have been affected by school closures due to the coronavirus pandemic. Many institutions are quickly seeking ways to reimagine education through virtual classes. Even as schools reopen, many will still be looking for opportunities to incorporate aspects of online learning into their daily instruction.

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 team ensure that all the content is accurate, consistent across languages, and culturally relevant to the end user.

K-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 students with limited English proficiency and maintain open channels of communication with parents and guardians. When concepts are translated appropriately, students better understand and retain the information. With years of experience translating learning materials, our linguists ensure that all content is meaningful, accurate, uniform, and culturally appropriate.

We help schools develop multilingual solutions across print, digital, and multimedia:

  • classroom-based instructional materials
  • exam materials
  • Individualized Education Programs (IEP)
  • parent communications
  • website content

higher education—recruiting international students and supporting communities

Translation helps colleges and universities facilitate smooth communication to prospective and existing students, parents, teachers, school administration, and the local community. We assist clients like CUNY and NYU 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.
