Interpretation and Translation Network

Affordable and Culturally-Responsive Language Services

 

It’s the law

Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination by any program receiving federal funding on the basis of race, color, or national origin.  The responsibility of providing language access is that of the entity, not that of the LEP individual.

 

Language and Cultural Challanges

Organizations face the growing challange of meeting the needs of a diverse population-challanges both linguistically and culturally.

"The interpreter was

great but, even

better, they provided

a familiar face and

a cultural perspective

that was comforting

to the client, reduced

anxiety, and was

productive for

everyone."
