Summary: The nation’s English language learner student population is expected to grow rapidly. According to the Pew Hispanic Center, the projected number of immigrant students will increase from 12.3 million in 2005 to 17.9 million in 2020, accounting for all the projected growth in the school-age population. With half of this population arriving from over 200 countries from around the world, stretching your dollars across additional languages is difficult at best. From this webinar, you’ll learn the basics of how translation is priced and what you can do to stretch your translation budget.
