PCA Helpline Eng_proof.qxdPhiladelphia Corporation for Aging (PCA) is a private, non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the quality of life for older Philadelphians or people with disabilities. Faced with a client population that included a growing number of seniors from non-English-speaking communities, PCA decided to translate selected informational documents, including its services brochure, into a variety of languages to reach out to identified minority groups.

With substantial experience translating for the non-profit and health care sectors, and with the ability to handle the diverse languages involved, as well as providing layout services, MTM LinguaSoft was a natural choice for this work. The languages involved included not only the obvious choices of Chinese, Russian and Spanish, but also Asian languages such as Vietnamese, Khmer, Indonesian, and Lao.
