Multilingual Digital Accessibility

Only around a sixth of the world's population speaks English. When you’re expanding a business globally, translation and accessibility intersect and need to work in harmony. If visually hidden text is not translated–that is, if text is hard-coded in English–many users with disabilities who don’t speak the language will not be able to understand the website. This includes, for example, people who are blind or visually impaired and use a screen reader and people with cognitive, language, and learning disabilities who rely on text-to-speech software.

Language access is access to legal services, healthcare, banking, and recruitment. Attention to the space where translation and accessibility meet empowers people of diverse backgrounds to engage with your business–and with the world.
