You Won't Believe The English Translation Of These Perodua Cars According To Google Translate

"Using it to decipher a single word is mostly fine, but in an attempt to translate an entire sentence into another language, you are bound to realize that there are countless errors that make the tool barely reliable after all".
Policy on discrimination and language

According to the Ontario Human Rights Commission the language-related grounds of discrimination are
ancestry, ethnic origin, place of origin, race.

"Although the Code does not explicitly identify "language" as a prohibited ground of discrimination, the Human Rights tribunal of Ontario may consider claims under a number of related grounds, such as ancestry, ethnic origin, place of origin and in some circumstances, race. In the Commission's experience, language can be an element of a complaint based on any of these grounds".
Ancient skeletons hold key to origins of language

"Now the skeletal evidence reveals that at least some Indo-European languages spoken in Europe likely resulted from massive migration from eastern Russia around 4,500 years ago."

GREAT NEWS!

The
OCCI just finalized the documentation for the creation of the Tier Accreditation System for Community Interpreters in Ontario.

In response to the need for consistent quality interpretation across all public service sectors, the Ontario Council on Community Interpreting (OCCI) is announcing the development of a progressive and responsive accreditation process for Community Interpreters.

​Limited English/French Proficiency individuals in Canada need access to quality service, in both urban and rural communities; and, interpreters need professional accreditation that will be recognized and valued. These needs are felt across the country and the work of the OCCI is aligned with initiatives at the national level.

A standardized accreditation process will take away the guesswork about interpreter qualifications for individuals working with interpreters, and will bring us closer to the common goal of professionalizing the Community Interpreting sector.  

The OCCI is unique in its approach of consultation with stakeholders and community members from across the province:


  • Interpreters
  • Public Service Providers
  • Interpreter Trainers
  • Interpretation Service Providers
  • Individuals facing language barriers
