Quick, clear connections

Jumpstarting growth. Virtual Events. eLearning. eCommerce. Thriving in the new normal. 

As waves of the COVID-19 pandemic ebb and flow, businesses are discovering that some changes intended to be temporary are here to stay. The future of work changed profoundly in early 2020 as remote operations became standard. From public health emergencies to battered economies, the keys to leadership remain the same: transparent, consistent, clear communication.  

At Lionbridge, our passion and talent for building bridges and breaking barriers is unchanged. We can help you find a way to reach every employee, contractor, partner and customer, no matter where they live or work or what language they speak. 

This resource center offers advice and examples for professionals looking to guide their company through these changes. Here you will find how-to tips ranging from running successful virtual events for a multilingual audience, to outsourcing global eLearning programs, to creating effective multilingual OSHA compliance communications to jumpstarting your multimarket ecommerce business.

The Disruption Series: Virtual Clinical Trials

Meeting demand for personal protective equipment during a pandemic

The demand for masks is just one part of the growing medical product need. With recommendations ever in flux from major health organizations and governments, the availability of personal protective equipment continues to dip. As other manufacturing projects stall around the world, companies have an opportunity to step in and help by redirecting workers and production centers to create much needed items for healthcare workers and patients. How can you and your team help bridge this gap?

COVID-19: Connection and Cooperation

As businesses and governments shutter their physical locations and move online, the life science industry finds itself in even higher demand while managing the strain of rapidly shifting requirements for safe operation. Regulatory agencies including the FDA and EMA are responding by changing site requirements and extensively reducing turnaround times.
