Happy Effective Communications Month! It is 2024 and communication has evolved and improved in many ways. We can share information with people across the globe instantly, choose how we want to share that information, and send it to millions of people with the click of a button.

We’ve come a long way since hieroglyphics and cave paintings, but many still struggle to be heard. For instance, CRICO Strategies medical safety experts discovered that out of 23,000 malpractice suits, 7000 resulted from failed communication. These cases amounted to $1.7 billion in malpractice costs and approximately 2000 preventable deaths. Clear communication is integral to providing effective service and care to people, especially those with limited English proficiency.


Effective Communication in a Multilingual World:

Communicating effectively fosters connection and understanding. Anyone who is looking to build relationships should keep this in mind — including businesses. As companies are looking to expand their global reach, communicate with a growing multilingual audience (68 million Americans speak another language other than English at home), and maintain a diverse workforce, the need to communicate clearly and effectively is paramount. This involves understanding diverse languages and being culturally aware.


What is a Language Service Provider?

A language service provider is an entity that offers language related services. These may include interpretation, translation and localization, and language testing and assessments. These services ensure that your message is not only heard but understood across diverse cultures and languages.
