Language Training and Training Support Services for the Defense Foreign Language Program; Prime: Language Associates, LLC d/b/a Diplomatic Language Services Defense Language Institute—Washington, MICC Center Fort Eustis

Project Summary: DLS provides on-site and off-site language training for survival, basic, intermediate, advanced and refresher courses and program management for the Defense Language Institute-Washington (DLI-W). We also have done extensive Curriculum Development work and deployed over 380 Mobile Training Teams through our DLI-W contract. Using Defense Language Institute (DLI) materials, Department of State Foreign Service Institute (FSI) materials, and other appropriate textbooks and materials, DLS follows proficiency-based training methodology as recommended by DLI and the Foreign Service Institute (FSI). Proficiency-based training applies to speaking, reading, and listening. DLS supplements textbook work with role-playing exercises for real-life professional communication practice, and with transcription and translation work, to aid in development of listening and reading comprehension skills.

AFPAK HANDS

In September 2009 DLS was chosen to work with DLI as a key language training provider for AFPAK Hands, the strategic approach in Afghanistan that is sending language-proficient service members on longer tours of duty in the region. DLS is staffing and carrying out the large-scale group language training program consisting of intensive, full-time courses in Pashto, Dari and Urdu developed by DLI. Classes usually range from 3-5 students and can be up to 6. DLS quickly accommodated the surge in students, providing the required facilities and recruiting qualified instructors within a very constrained timeframe. Our ability to recruit and train top-quality native speaker instructors is central to the language training program’s success and continuity, and we have employed 91 Dari instructors, 43 Pashto instructors, and 20 Urdu instructors throughout the course of the program, many with advanced degrees. Instructors use our in-house curriculum that was developed specifically for this program and is tailored to the students’ professional needs. The AFPAK course was initially designed with a target final OPI score of 0+/0+. After the first four iterations, due to the overwhelming majority of students achieving 1/1 or 1+/1+, the benchmark was raised to 1/1. Since 2010, 89% of students across all languages have successfully achieved their target goal or higher.

The AFPAK courses follow a syllabus developed by DLI and DLS for the 16 weeks per Phase of the program. The course syllabus for each language has been re-evaluated and fine-tuned in order to meet the client’s required end goal of a level 1 OPI score. The curriculum includes lessons that focus on cultural familiarization and intercultural awareness. Furthermore, we are able to leverage the experiences and personal knowledge of our professionally trained AFPAK linguists to convey cultural knowledge based on their first-hand experiences as Afghan or Pakistani natives. In November 2010 the Dari curriculum development team created a supplemental Afghan Hands Cultural Appendix to further highlight Afghan culture. Moreover, in response to student demand, DLS developed a presentation on Language History and Background emphasizing the language’s history, cultural context and most prominent differences from English.

CULTURAL TRAINING

DLS has a dedicated space specifically for immersion exercises and cultural events. In every year of AFPAK Hands, DLS has conducted an immersion or cultural activity towards the end of each cohort in Phase I and Phase IV. Each exercise is separated by language and has tasks and activities tailored to the Cohort students’ performance and needs. The immersion room is filled with DLS-trained instructors as role players in authentic and culturally relevant attire. The décor is set up with authentic props to simulate an immersive environment. Instructors brief the students prior to the event and prepare them by reviewing materials. The students then spend the day interacting with role players in the target language in a variety of tasks that enhance learning and prepare students for their in-theater experience by reproducing real-life situations.

MOBILE TRAINING TEAMS

In addition to on-site general proficiency and AFPAK Hands language training, we also provide training via Mobile Training Teams. These Teams provide language proficiency training at military installations across the US and in OCONUS locations. Since 2011, we have deployed 387 MTTs in many languages, including: Albanian, Arabic, Dari, Pashto, Urdu, French, Swahili, Somali, Spanish, and Thai. For off-site training, the DLS supervision plan consists of a combination of management visits, student feedback, and on-site senior instructor Team Leaders who serve as mentors and guide less experienced instructors. Management oversight for AFPAK Hands hub locations in Tampa, Florida and Norfolk, Virginia is provided by the LTS for Afghan Languages, the Dari Language Project Manager and the Pashto and Urdu Language Project Manager, who travel to the hubs at least once per session and are always available to address any instructor issues.

CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT

DLS worked very closely with DLI-Washington for the development of the AFPAK Phase IV curriculum. This project required development for Dari and Pashto language training. Two developers were assigned to each language. The development of the core materials for AFPAK Hands Phase IV began in April 2011 and was completed in March 2012. The lessons in Phase IV consist of speaking activities geared toward the Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI) as well as listening activities geared towards ILR Level 2. After the completion of the core materials, DLS was requested to develop enhancement materials for said course. These materials included for each language a complete grammar reference (for Phase I-IV), a supplemental history lesson consistent with core lessons, Rapid Rote vocabulary lists for all course vocabulary, and listening and reading practice books to simulate proficiency testing from Level 0+ to 3. The enhancement materials were completed in July 2012, and the first Phase IV course began in August 2012.

In addition, DLS developed over 200 Weekly Training Event (WTE) Learning Objects for DLI-W as part of the Curriculum Development project. Weekly Training Events are a program of online language lessons designed for military and government linguists that include authentic-language text and video/audio, a glossary, an English translation, and activities for student practice. In January 2012, DLS expanded the cultural element of the program by developing a cultural immersion component for AFPAK Hands students. DLS worked closely with several government agencies to identify scenarios that students would face in Afghanistan. DLS provides native-speaking role players to reenact these scenarios with students, preparing each student to leave the confines of language training and venture out to work within the culture of that language. DLS’ success with curriculum development projects is a result of structured quality control programs and rigorous selection criteria resulting in developers with high language and technology skills.

National Virtual Translation Center (NVTC) BPA, Prime: Language Associates, LLC d/b/a Diplomatic Language Services, 24 SEP 2011 – 23 SEP 2016

Since 2011, DLS has provided quality translations and linguist support services to the National Virtual Translation Center and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Under this BPA, DLS provides document translation services in multiple languages, including a variety of low density languages, and large scale translations of up to 650,000 words. The DLS NVTC Program Manager and DLS Project Manager work seamlessly to provide reliable and realistic quotes within four hours for all translation requests. For example, since only U.S. citizen native linguists are eligible to work on NVTC translations, it is of great importance to assign a linguist prior to committing to an assignment. Linguists are chosen based on their past experience and subject matter expertise. We prefer to assign linguists with professional experience in the subject matter of the document if at all possible. All work is reviewed and edited by experienced linguists to ensure accuracy. Planning and organization for each project is significant to the success of the project.

The Project Manager monitors the progress and status of each project daily. Expectations regarding the translation work are always clearly defined when the project is accepted and assigned. Accurate work and expected productivity volumes are monitored by the Program Manager at each step of the workflow process. Both the translator and the Quality Control Expert are familiar with the subject matter, due dates, style guidelines, supporting documentation, and other relevant details. This multi-step Quality Control process ensures the highest rate of accuracy on all projects. The Program Manger delivers finalized documents through NVTC’s TONS online system.

When permitted, we use SDL Trados Translation software. SDL Trados utilizes segments from previous translations and incorporates them into new translation. This provides consistency across documents. When requested, our translators provide summary translation and/or gisting. Linguists have experience in translating objectionable material, and their professionalism in the workplace and sensitivity to procedures for handling and processing material allows for smooth project execution. Both NVTC and FBI, DLS translates multiple file formats including audio transcription, graphics and otherwise unelectable text for both Classified and law enforcement sensitive documents. We also perform Desktop Publishing. Various translations have included, but are not limited to military, scientific, financial, and legal documents, all of various lengths.

DLS has submitted numerous certified translations, which include a letter from the translator indicating that they are fluent/an expert in both the source and target language and that the translation is completely accurate to their knowledge.

Our QA process is executed through a variety of mechanisms, to include:

Audits

CLI uses in-progress audits to verify that planned activities are being performed, designated work products are being developed, and approved standards and policies are being followed. Audits verify that the processes and procedures specified in the QC Plan are implemented, producing the desired results in the most efficient and effective manner. Additionally, implementation of lifecycle audits conducted at the completion of each phase of the contract lifecycle help verify that needed activities and products were completed; action items were resolved; discrepancies were documented; and lessons learned were formally captured, reported, and disseminated.

Process Analysis

Periodically throughout the project life cycle, process analysis reviews are used to identify any needed process improvements. The review examines problems experience, contact and non-value added (NVA) activities that, if improved or corrected, will deliver higher quality and generally lower cost through efficiencies gained.

Lessons Learned

CLI collects lessons learned by conducting “mini” After Action Review (AAR) sessions and launching quality-focused satisfaction surveys (formal and informal). Lessons learned and improved operating procedures are disseminated to the team via regular team meetings; standardized email alerts; and other paperless collaboration methods consistent with the constraints and security requirements of each project.

Performance and Document Reviews

Performance and document reviews are evaluations aimed at ensuring services provided comply with the applicable standards while meeting Government requirements. The Program Manger will ensure accurate completion of all required reports using the government supplied formats (when available) within the required reporting timelines.
