Business Language Champions
As part of The Translation People’s commitment to all things language related, the company recently became a Business Language Champion. This process involves spending time within an educational establishment to promote language learning in the country. Read More.
The Business Language Champion programme is a partnership between schools and businesses that offer children first-hand experience of how languages are used in the workplace. The programme, promoted by the Regional Language Network, is designed to promote language learning amongst children. This is a subject very close to our hearts, as the translation industry relies on professional, qualified linguists in order to provide high quality language services to our clients.
Of the experience, Stephanie Beckwith, an Account Manager in our Manchester office (far left in photo), says: “Becoming involved with a programme such as this allowed me to gain first-hand knowledge of the reasons why some children feel reluctant to learn languages. Hopefully my input has gone some way to addressing their concerns and sparking some interest in learning languages.” Stephanie has a number of events planned with Salford City Academy over the next few months, such as a project in conjunction with the Tourist Board and a canal boat trip.
