Culturally-Competent Spanish Translations
For nearly 40 years, Greater Lawrence Family Health Center (GLFHC) has been serving the health needs of Hispanic and Latinx people in the Merrimack Valley.
Meeting these needs means speaking their language — not simply traditional Spanish, but the specific dialect and manner of speaking that has emerged from the rich culture of this specific population in this specific location.
We call this “culturally-competent Spanish,” and it’s not just the most respectful way to reach out to consumers in this area. It’s also the most effective.
Fast, Effective Translations from an Experienced Expert
GLFHC’s Area Health Education Center (AHEC) houses a Cultural & Language Specialist, Ana Ortiz, who has been with the organization for over three decades — bringing with her a wealth of regional and cultural knowledge that makes her an invaluable resource in translating the health center’s internal and external marketing materials.
Whether you’re looking to expand your reach with the Hispanic and Latinx market segment or communicate policies and procedures in an audience-appropriate way with your Hispanic and Latinx employees, our AHEC Spanish Translation Services will help you reach this population in culturally-competent Spanish.
