Language Testing for Finance Companies

Ensure your bilingual employees have the language skills required to properly and effectively communicate critical financial information to customers with Limited English Proficiency.

Grow Your Business with LEP Customers

Over 21% of Americans speak a language other than English at home. It’s a largely under-banked population that presents a huge growth opportunity for financial institutions.

But not all employees who self-identify as bilingual can accurately communicate critical details about a bank account, loan, or investment to your LEP customers.

ALTA can help. More than two decades of developing and administering language proficiency tests give us a deep understanding of the language needs of financial professionals.

We’ve even developed a customized listening and speaking test specifically for the finance industry to ensure your team is qualified to help you grow with LEP customers.
