Using external translation vendors can often be costly, rigid, and time-consuming. The National Language Service Corps (NLSC), a program of the Defense Language National Security Education Office (DLNSEO) in the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness at the Department of Defense (DoD), can help fulfill your language needs offering regional and cultural expertise at a fraction of the cost.

Hyejin Hickey and Christina Lantuh will share details of the NLSC—an agile, flexible, and cost-effective (yet high-quality) program that can provide services in over 400 languages. They will delve into the NLSC’s full range of language capabilities and answer your questions on how to maximize their services.

Christina Lantuh is a policy analyst with experience in military personnel programs. Within the past five years, she has supported the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, Office of Warrior Care, and the Defense Language and National Security Education Office’s National Language Service Corps. Her educational background is in Policy Analysis and Management, and she is currently pursuing a law degree.

Hyejin Hickey is a language acquisition professional with expertise in military foreign language education. Within the past 12 years, she has supported the U.S. Special Operations Command’s Special Warfare Center and School, U.S. Army 1-1 Special Forces Group and Detachment 1, and U.S. Air Force 43rd Intelligence Squadron in Okinawa, Japan. Currently, she supports the Defense Language and National Security Education Office’s National Language Service Corps as the Partner Support Liaison Lead.

This talk is hosted by the Multilingual Community of Practice and Digital.gov.
