Global Language Solutions Donates Spanish Translation Services to Whole Child International to Help the Nonprofit's Expansion in Central America

ALISO VIEJO, CA and LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - November 20, 2008) - Global Language Solutions®, a full-service translation company, today announced that it is donating Spanish translation services to support the growth efforts of Whole Child International (www.wholechild.org) in Nicaragua and El Salvador.

Whole Child International, a 501(c)(3) international aid organization based in Los Angeles, works to improve the quality of life for children in orphanages and other institutions. Research by Whole Child and its partners has proven that institutions can be dramatically improved at relatively small cost by focusing on the relationship between child and caregiver. They focus on three basic childcare principles -- primary caregiving, continuity of care, and small groups -- and training, guiding, and supporting administrators and caregivers on the changes that are necessary to meet children's critical social and emotional needs.

"After completing a successful pilot program in Managua, Nicaragua, we have expanded this comprehensive program from one to a total of five orphanages in Nicaragua, and three more in El Salvador," commented Whole Child Founding Executive Director Karen Gordon. "In order to help expand our programs throughout these countries, we need to communicate and present our research findings in the local language. Global Language Solutions' donation of Spanish translation services meets a crucial program need and helps raise funds from and communicate with the societies in which we work. The Global Language Solutions support means so much to this organization."

Added Inna Kassatkina, president of Global Language Solutions, "It was an easy decision for our firm to donate translation services to an organization that will impact the lives of so many children in orphanages throughout the world. Whole Child's goal is to meet the well-understood need for attachment at the core of a child's development, and they have implemented their programs with great success. GLS wants to see that success continue to grow and we are committed to help spread their vision."

To help in the nonprofit's expansion to additional orphanages in Central America, Global Language Services has donated the translation of Whole Child International's research studies from English to Spanish. Future plans involve localizing the organization's website and translation of its program information documents.
