Efficiency and Compliance: The Value of Government Interpreters

government interpreters Telelanguage

Government interpreters are an essential part of public services in the U.S. today as the number of limited-English-proficient speakers continues to grow nationwide. According to data from the 2013 American Community Survey (ACS), the number of foreign-language speakers increased 2.2 million between 2010 and 2013 (United States Census Bureau), and 1 in 5 U.S. residents speaks a language other than English at home. Government agencies must be able to communicate with the populations they serve regardless of language by law.

That’s where qualified government interpreters come in. But for many government entities, providing language services and multiple language materials can be expensive and take considerable effort. A reliable language services partner can help provide public service materials and trained interpreters of the highest quality in a timely and cost effective manner.

Telelanguage has been a trusted language services partner, providing government interpreters and translation to government clients nationwide since 1991.
