Language Service Providers Give Back
Story flagged by RominaZ
Common Sense Advisory asked language service providers (LSPs) about their acts of charity and we received responses from nearly 130 LSPs. Our intention in recording these efforts is to encourage companies who’ve taken the initiative to share whatever they can with those in need and motivate others to act similarly. Because of the overwhelming number of responses we received, we only list two good deeds per company.
