Language Justice: A Powerful Framework for Expanding Your Translation Services & Elevating Your Client Relationships

July 20 / 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

Attend this webinar to explore how language justice can enhance your translation practice, helping you overcome challenges with direct clients and effectively utilize machine translation and artificial intelligence while fostering mutually beneficial relationships.

Working with direct clients offers numerous advantages, yet issues like budget constraints, lack of translation experience, and time limitations can leave translators dissatisfied with their role. Moreover, the rise of machine translation and artificial intelligence is shrinking both the quantity and quality of available work opportunities, prompting many translators to seek ways to secure more rewarding assignments. In this webinar, we’ll introduce language justice as a valuable toolkit for addressing these challenges. We’ll delve into the concept of language justice and its role in cultivating a diverse linguistic environment. We’ll also explore strategies for incorporating language justice into your service offerings, empowering you to play a more proactive role in the translation process and capitalize on emerging opportunities. Join us to discover how language justice can help foster mutually satisfying relationships with your clients.

In this webinar will help you:

  • Understand the principles of language justice.
  • Find ways to incorporate language justice into your service offerings.
  • Explore strategies you can start using now to secure more work with direct clients.
  • Leverage your language skills in new ways to build and maintain mutually satisfying relationships with clients.
