HR TRANSLATIONS 2018-01-30T18:15:54+00:00

Level the playing field for employees by using professional human resources translation.

Today’s workforce is diverse, with many workers whose first language is not English.

The Brookings Institute reported that nearly one in 10 working-age adults in the U.S. is limited in English proficiency. Two-thirds of these are Hispanic, but the workforce also includes many speakers of Asian and Pacific Island languages.

Many immigrant workers speak English adequately, but they often struggle to understand the information in important written materials. It is crucial for employees to understand and follow workplace procedures such as safety guidelines.

Show all your employees that they are an important part of your team.

Hook Translations routinely translates everything from safety signs to annual employee benefit packages. Our project managers make sure your sensitive documents are translated accurately and delivered by the deadline.

Our HR translation services include:

  • Benefits communications
  • Codes of conduct
  • Employment applications
  • Employment contracts
  • Employee handbooks
  • Newsletters
  • Policies
  • Safety materials
  • Social media messages
  • Training materials

HR managers have found that translating materials for non-English-speaking employees has a positive effect on helping immigrant workers feel included as members of the workforce and integral parts of the team.

Spanish-language materials don’t serve just recent immigrants. Various studies have also revealed that Hispanics who were born in the U.S. and speak English fluently often feel more connected to Spanish-language content.

Reading communications from the company they work for in their own language assures them that they are indeed valued employees.
