We Speak Translate is a valuable training for service providers to support clients facing language barriers. See the information on Eventbrite for upcoming webinars.
"The We Speak Translate project is a first of its kind collaboration between Google Translate and the Inter-Cultural Association of Greater Victoria (ICA) utilizing the Google Translate app for refugee resettlement and newcomer inclusion in communities.
The project involves training community stakeholders, organizations and institutions in the Google Translate app. Upon completion of the 45-minute training, participants receive a We Speak Translate decal, a visible symbol of inclusion and commitment to promoting diversity and communication across language barriers. Familiarity with the Google Translate app establishes a common platform for communication while newcomers develop their English language skills."
