Community Interpreting

Community interpreting is the type of interpreting that is used in community-based contexts. Communities that have large numbers of Limited English Proficiency LEP speakers need community interpreting to provide language access to these individuals and break communication barriers.

Immigrants, refugees, and families and their children usually need community interpreting services particularly during the first few years after settling in their new country. They need community interpreting to access public services, such as social security, family services and health care.
