As a land mass the United States is enormous. With no official language, it’s interesting to consider how the U.S. adopted English. As many from around the globe sought freedom and greater opportunity, languages like French, German, Filipino, Spanish, Italian and Chinese were spoken in millions of homes. And although push from the east to west coast took some time, even in the early 1900’s pockets of language and culture were spoken among immigrants, while English continued to be the language of exterior life for work.
But in Los Angeles, many communities are managing to retain their language while assimilating into the broader U.S. culture. With more than 54% of that population speaking a language other than English, Spanish accounts for over 37% with Chinese a distant second. As this continues Spanish translation services in Los Angeles continue to grow in need.
One of the most requested services for Translators in Los Angeles is legal document translation. With these services in such demand, legal interpretation and translation training programs are often filled. A high level of skill is required to deliver legal translations that are perfectly accurate- a critical requirement in a field where just one error in a document can have a significant impact.
From purchasing homes and automobiles to enrolling children in school, documents must be understood to be helpful, much less legally binding. Organizations such as the Los Angeles Unified School District serve Adult Education needs. Translation agencies for Los Angeles can assist with the types of needs which arise from enrolling, educating and generally communicating with a student body of over 600,000.
