Department Role

The Translation Office provides written translations and verbal interpreting services to any and all individuals or groups within the Salt Lake City School District which require language assistance. Our goal is to help everyone understand each other when the language barrier interferes. Interpreting includes the major languages spoken by employees, students and family members in the school district community. American Sign Language interpreting is also available when needed. We strive to help our community members in any way possible, for meetings of any type that affect the functions of the school district and its departments, schools and community members. If you need assistance, please contact us at any time. If you have an urgent matter and cannot reach our office, please refer to the interpreter list to the right and call an interpreter for the language needed.

Personal Role

Bob's purpose as Translator Coordinator is to organize and coordinate the translation of all documents, the assignment of interpreters, and the preparation of multi-lingual communication services. He will help leaders, administrators, teachers and community members understand the nuances of translation/interpretation so that we can serve you well. Angelica, as the Translation Office Assistant, receives requests and sets appointments. She also translates documents and interprets for appointments in the district offices as needed.

Announcements
