About FLP Bridge
Foltek Language & Policy Bridge, LLC (“FLP Bridge”) is a translation, language and policy training and consulting company supporting government agencies, intergovernmental and non-profit organizations, training and education institutions, think tanks, research centers, businesses and private individuals at both local and global levels.
FLP Bridge was founded in December 2015 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with a mission to provide the highest quality English to French translation in the international policy arena, as well as French language skills acquisition and training and education in such policy fields as negotiation, mediation, conflict resolution, cross-culture, disarmament, demobilization and reintegration (DDR) of ex-combatants, and civil-military relations and elections security.
Language translation and language education can help bridge the gaps between people speaking different languages and whose cultures are not the same. Policy training and education can raise people’s awareness in our ever-changing global communities. This is the reason why FLP Bridge offers these services to help clients meet their needs and achieve their goals.
At FLP Bridge, it is our mission to facilitate and promote dialogue through French translation, French language skills acquisition and policy training, as a bridge to fostering understanding and strengthening relationships. We position ourselves as that bridge over which each side is empowered to take part in this dialogue equitably, whether they speak English or French.
FLP Bridge strives for excellence in language teaching, translation, training and education, and international relations. We believe in precision, professionalism and pragmatism, and we do not make promises we cannot keep. For the projects we accept or the training programs we facilitate, we guarantee timely turnaround and quality service.
FLP Bridge is proud of the long list of clients we have supported over the years for their translation, language and policy training needs. These organizations we have supported include, but are not limited to, the United Nations Inter-Agency Working Group on DDR, the United Nations Development Programme Bureau for Crisis Prevention and Recovery, the United Nations Department of Peacekeeping Operations, the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center, the Center for Civil Military Relations at the Naval Postgraduate School, RAND Corporation, IMPAQ, the Peacekeeping School of Bamako, and the West African Economic and Monetary Union.
