Response to USG Foreign Language Services Ordering Guide

The https://www.lep.gov/ site is a go-to site for language access. The Federal Government has done an excellent job of providing very valuable resources here.

Some of my favorite resources are on this page:

However, when Milena Calderari-Waldron and I, Helen Eby, reviewed one of the top items on the page, the Foreign Language Services Ordering Guide, we found significant differences from established practices in our field and in published papers. Therefore, we sent a review of these differences to the drafting team on July 13, 2017.

We hope this review of the Ordering Guide is useful to the Federal Government and possibly to others.
