Back to Basics Learning Dynamics, Inc. was recently chosen as one of a few, select companies to be awarded a yearlong, statewide contract for translating and interpreting services in all Delaware state agencies. Since 1985, Back to Basics had provided an exceptional range of award-winning educational services, including translating and interpreting in over 16 languages, throughout the tri-state area.
“In our increasingly global world, the ability to communicate effectively and accurately is paramount. Throughout Delaware, there is a real need for translating and interpreting services. When working with state agencies such as Department of Services for Children, Youth and Their Families, Office of Child Support Enforcement, and Delaware Disability Determination Services, communication can often have life-changing consequences,” explains Back to Basics Learning Dynamics Director, Beverly Stewart, M.Ed.
The contract is in effect for all three counties in Delaware and covers three specific areas of expertise, including translating and interpreting in legal (non-judicial), psychological/mental and education capacities.
First, legal translating and interpreting will be provided by Back to Basics’ professionals in relation to the legal system. Examples of agencies include Department of Corrections, Department of Labor, Department of Unemployment Insurance, and any other state agency that requires the use of a state-approved translator or interpreter. Back to Basics provides these services 7 days a week for both routine and emergency situations.
Next, Back to Basics will provide psychological/mental translating and interpreting for all state agencies such as state-run hospitals, Department of Health and Social Services, State Council for Persons with Disabilities, Delaware Veterans Home, Veterans Affairs, Vocational Rehabilitation, and more.
Finally, Back to Basics’ translating and interpreting services will be available for all educational venues such as the Department of Education, as well as for all public schools throughout the state.
Back to Basics maintains over 60 professional translators and interpreters on staff. A member of the American Translators Association, Back to Basics also offers translating for books, documents, manuals, web pages, correspondence, labels, annual reports, and more, as well as interpreting services for a variety of business settings.
In order to receive the state contract, the company was required to pass a rigorous application process which involved state and FBI background checks on all 60 translators and interpreters. In addition, each professional underwent a thorough competency test, as well as an evaluation of qualifications and experience. For any translators or interpreters working within the Department of Corrections, additional background checks were also performed.
