Linguistic audit

A linguistic (language) audit is a service that performs an in-depth analysis of foreign language competency development. This analysis helps obtain reliable results regarding the foreign language proficiency of personnel who use language as part of their professional communications.

It is recommended that this procedure is carried out before individual training routes are planned, in order that the clearest understanding of the corporate training’s goals and objectives is attained. Checks on development of foreign language competency may also be used as tools for quality control and training efficiency assessment and, therefore, may provide an overall supervisory function within a training process.

EGO Translating University offers internal and international language audits.

Internal language auditing

EGO Translating Company offers you a fast, unbiased and comprehensive assessment of the overall foreign language proficiency level among your company's employees. This procedure involves analysis of participants' language, speaking, socio-cultural and strategic competencies. The results of this assessment are submitted following an internal linguistic audit of personnel that uses state-of-art training media from EGO Translating University.
