March 10, 2022 -GLOBO has announced a partnership with OMNIA Partners, Public Sector. The partnership will enable public agencies and educational institutions that are contracted with OMNIA Partners to leverage GLOBO’s innovative language solutions to communicate with the U.S.’s Limited English Proficient (LEP) population. The partnership expands GLOBO’s ability to improve language access for government and educational institutions.
“Ensuring equal access to essential services has always been a focus for GLOBO,” says Dipak Patel, President & Chief Operating Officer. “We’re excited to have this opportunity with OMNIA Partners to continue championing that initiative.”
More than 66.5 million Americans speak a language other than English at home. Of that population, about 25 million are considered limited English proficient, which is defined as the limited ability to speak, write, read, or understand English. Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 states that entities or programs that receive Federal financial assistance must make programs accessible to people with limited-English proficiency — this means ensuring interpretation or translation is available as needed to ensure equal access to healthcare and other vital services.
“OMNIA Partners is thrilled to have GLOBO as a partner to offer participating agencies a language solution with innovative technology and access to a comprehensive suite of on-demand interpreting & translation services in over 350 languages. This agreement offers a powerful language solution for our primary and higher education, state and local government, and non-profit agencies.”
-- Doug Looney, Senior Vice President, Public Sector Sales for OMNIA Partners
