Since the early 2010s, LSC and other funders have encouraged legal aid programs to create multilingual materials and make their online tools available in languages represented in their states. A two-part miniseries will review best practices and tools that are available to expedite the creation of online materials for Limited English Proficient (LEP) communities, and focus on activities and strategies to make sure those materials are well used and known among LEP communities in those regions. The first session will focus on reviewing the elements of creating strong LEP materials within budget. It will cover sharing tech tools that can be used to expedite LEP content creation, choosing materials that are relevant to that particular language community, LEP outreach, keeping materials up to date after initial release and more.
This is the second of the two part series.
