LIPS Translations

IFSI provides Language Interpretation and Pronunciation Services or "LIPS" to interested community members and organizations on a fee for service basis. Over twenty different languages and dialects, including the three major Asian languages (Chinese, Cambodian, and Vietnamese), are a part of the LIPS inventory. Most important, LIPS stresses cultural competence in all of its communication, marketing, and public relations services.

Program services include verbal and written translations, and assistance in working with linguistically diverse groups. Collaborating with IFSI's Development Department, LIPS is also able to assist clients to produce tailored translated text material and corresponding photo-ready graphics for printing.

Don't stay tongue-tied, let Intercultural LIPS help you bridge linguistic and cultural gaps.
