Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indianapolis-based Language Training Center Inc. plans a $1.5 million expansion that will lead to the hiring of 26 more employees by 2017, the company announced Thursday.

The 20-year-old company, which offers language-training, translation and interpreting services, said it plans to expand its headquarters at 5750 Castle Creek Parkway by 3,500 feet. LTC also has an office in Shanghai, China

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered LTC up to $165,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $60,000 in training grants, based on the company's job-creation plans.

LTC provides services to school districts, hospitals, courts, fire departments and businesses including Eli Lilly and Co., Roche Diagnostics and the NCAA.

New hires will include sign language interpreting specialists, linguists, office managers and customer service representatives.

"The expansion of LTC shows that Indy's international business needs are growing right along with it," Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard said in a prepared statement. "This is good news for the future of our city as international companies looking to expand into the U.S. market see us as an ideal location due to our strong business climate."

  1. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

  3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

  4. Send them back NOW.

  5. deport now
