ROANOKE AND NEW RIVER VALLEY INTERPRETERS AND TRANSLATORS

Learn how VOLATIA Language Services can provide your Roanoke-area business with best-in-class support for more than 280 languages.

The international community of Roanoke, Virginia, outpaces that of some much larger Virginia cities. More than 7% of the city’s population are foreign born and more than 9% speak a language other than English in the home, according to U.S. Census data.

Just a few miles down Interstate 81, the New River Valley also supports a thriving international population, with nearly 11% of Montgomery County residents speaking a language other than English in the home.

Across the region, the international community continues to expand in terms of population and influence. The area has long been a haven for refugees, as public and private entities build more and more infrastructure to welcome and support them. In addition, foreign-born professionals and students are attracted to research, employment and educational opportunities, many of which are connected to Carilion Clinic or Virginia Tech.

Among this growing international population are individuals with limited English proficiency who are looking for the services your business provides. Failing to deliver complete, quality service because of a language barrier costs you revenue, increases your liability and, depending on the nature of your business, could even violate federal and other regulations.
