TransCultures provides Language Access Plan Development services, also called Linguistic Audits, to organizations in the non-for-profit, public and private sectors. Language Access Plan includes a thorough investigation of the linguistic needs of an organization to assist organizations in identifying their strengths and weaknesses in communication in a foreign language. A language Access Plan maps the organizational language needs at the strategic level to help define a linguistic policy for the organization. It also works at the operational level to identify the existing and needed linguistic skills and resources of each department. The Language Access Plan will include information as to what the cost in time, human resources, training, and finance will be to accomplish the linguistic goals for an organization and maintain an effective language Access Plan . Management can use this information to allocate resources appropriately for budgeting, staffing, hiring, and promoting.
