FreshGrade Integrates with Google Translate to Enhance Engagement

We’re excited to announce the integration of Google Translate for comment and announcement features within FreshGrade for all new and existing school and district partners.

Available on FreshGrade web apps, FreshGrade for Parents, and FreshGrade for Students mobile apps, this integration allows teachers, parents, and students to both read and write in the language of their choosing. This upgrade will enable more effective communication and collaboration between educators and their students and parents who are bilingual, multilingual, or English language learners (ELLs).

“Communication is extremely important to our users and the integration of Google Translate will provide a better way for teachers, parents, and students to connect and communicate,” explains developer, Bryan Graham.

“We anticipate that the biggest payoff will be for teachers working to engage parents whose primary language isn’t English,” says Director of Product, Terri-Lynn Brown. “Bringing these parents closer to the classroom will pay huge dividends in supporting the learning plan and increasing student outcomes.”

Google Translate supports 104 languages including English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Turkish, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. The option to use Google Translate is available to users of FreshGrade for School and District users and is configurable by admins. This integration will benefit a large population of FreshGrade users. In the United States, 9.4 percent, or more than 4.6 million, public school students are English language learners, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. In seven states and the District of Columbia, the number of ELLs is greater than 10 percent.

We hope you like these improvements! For more information about the update, visit our Google Translate Overview. Interested in implementing FreshGrade across your school or district? Contact inquiries@freshgrade.com today.
