Language Assistance

If English is not your native language, government agencies may be required to provide you oral and written interpretation.

Language assistance includes the use of interpreters. Interpreters help two people who do not speak the same language to speak to each other. Interpretation can be provided by trained interpreters, bilingual staff, or telephone interpretation services. Language assistance also includes the use of translators. Translators help people understand documents written in English by rewriting those documents in languages they can read. To find out more, click on the links below.​
