Language Assistance Services

The Government facilitates access to language assistance services, such as interpreting and translation services, to help clients with limited English access public services and information.

A new Telephone Interpreting Service for government agencies has replaced Language Line. This service helps clients with limited English to communicate with government agencies through telephone interpreters available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in over 180 languages. More information can be found on their website:
