Government Interpreting: Breaking Language Barriers for All

Since 1964, all U.S. government entities have been required to ensure that people who have little or no command of the English language receive equal access to public services. Essentially, this means that language interpreting services are regularly needed at virtually every level of government – from local city and county offices to large federal agencies.

For 20 years, LATN has served as a leading provider of interpreters in this area, delivering services in more than 130 languages.

Because we strongly support the national mandate of accessibility for all, we are happy to accommodate unexpected changes and unusual parameters in provision of services to government and send only our most highly-trained and experienced interpreters. We enforce strict adherence to rules of confidentiality and the industry code of ethics

Types of Interpreting Provided for Government

  • Provision of daily staff for offices with high volumes of non-English speakers
  • Facilitation of phone conversations
  • Internal and external meetings and events
  • Assistance in aiding equal access for consumers
  • Emergency management communications
