Our Education Translation Experience
Case Study: Stand for Children
Stand For Children is an American education advocacy group that was founded in 1996 following the Children’s Defense Fund Rally. They have offices in major states throughout the U.S., including Arizona, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, and Washington.
Stand for Children has claimed over 100 state and local victories, affecting billions of dollars in public funding and the lives of nearly 4 million children. It is currently in a strategic expansion phase, broadening its reach to states where it believes it can make the most significant difference for children, at all levels of government.
Language Connections has worked alongside Stand for Children for many years by providing them with education interpretation services. Each year, we send Spanish interpreters to their annual summit as well as the necessary interpreting equipment such as microphones, sound booths and ear pieces.
Education translation services has also been a big part of our ongoing affiliation with Stand for Children. We have translated materials into various languages such as Cape Verdean Creole, Haitian Creole, Spanish, and more. Most recently, Language Connections was responsible for the translation of the group's website to make it available in Spanish.
