Florida Interpreter and Translator

 

Florida's levels of population diversity are absolutely intimidating, --so imagine how that might feel to any family or individual who doesn't speak English as a first language, or with no English skills at all. Florida translation can intervene and cut through a lot of the problems people have by simply running into a huge language wall. Hispanic, Latino, Haitian, and any other culture, should get the same opportunities, and a qualified state translator can do that.

 

Who benefits from a Florida interpreter or translator?

Florida's diverse community comes in contact with the major industries seen below, every day. It's confusing enough when you speak English, and have to sort through these systems, but if you don't it's practically impossible. Translators in these institutions and industries relieve a lot of pressure; and they'll always be needed. With Florida's continued commercial development, this is especially significant.

 

  • Medical - Florida is a large state, and has many fine medical institutions, as well as numerous other clinics, which deserve just as much consideration as larger hospitals. People of various ethnicity and cultures also need consideration. Florida certified translators and interpreters make sure these people receive proper medical care, and can communicate their needs.
  • Legal Industry - Florida is known in some circles literally, as the "Sue-Me State", --Florida certified translators and interpreters can make sure no one in the legal system is taken advantage of, regardless of ethnic backgrounds.
  • Insurance Companies - When insurance carriers use competent translators and interpreters, they're not only reaching and communicating in the best possible way with multicultural clients. The carriers are also reaching out into a large potential for clients, which without translators, would not be possible. It's a better business investment for these carriers to hire full time translators to communicate with minority clients.
  • Tourism and Travel - The travel industry in Florida is a major part of the state's economy; without qualified translators and interpreters who have varied language skills, the economy would suffer. Not to mention the many tourists who come to appreciate Florida's numerous natural and urban attractions; translators ensure that these people continue to experience all the excitement of Florida, without the frustration of a language barrier.

 

Languages Spoken In Florida

In Florida there are several languages spoken; Spanish, Portuguese, different dialogues of French, and even Tagalog. A Florida interpreter with multilingual qualifications can make a huge difference, or even a translator who only speaks one other language fluently, can make someone's life easier. Whether you volunteer, work full or part time as a translator, the relief that can come from simply putting your skills to use is enormous.

 

  • Spanish - As of the year 2000, almost twenty-percent of Florida residents spoke Spanish comfortably at home. Naturally this number has increased since then, and there's also a significant amount of Spanish speaking families and individuals with no English language skills. The need for Spanish translators in Florida is rapidly rising.
  • Haitian Creole - According to statistics, almost two percent of the Florida population as of the year 2000 spoke Haitian Creole in the home. Haitian Creole, also known as French Creole, is another dialect of the French language; it is not quite the same as generic French, nor does it has the same details as Jamaican Patois. However, any proficiency in either dialect is a major help as a translator, though interpreters and translators that specialize in Haitian Creole are preferred.
  • French - Generic French is spoken in Florida as well; not necessarily the dialects of Haitian or Jamaican heritage. French translators and interpreters are needed. Though only around two percent of Florida residents speak French at home, that's still hundreds of thousands of people. Many of which may not have any English language skills.
  • Tagalog - Unlike many other states in the country, Florida has a small percentage (around one percent) of residents that speak Tagalog at home. Translators and interpreters of this language is rare, which makes the need for them that much more urgent.
