Interpreter Services

Community Interpreter Service promotes cultural and language communication by making available interpreters who are well-trained, unbiased, objective and confidential.

The LSS Community Interpreter Service is available to individuals and organizations who serve people with limited English skills. Such organizations include community service providers, employers, hospitals, schools and law enforcement. Services include:

  • On-site Interpretation

    LSS interpreters are able to translate legal documentation, employee handbooks, leases, employee notices and more.

  • Message Relay

    The client can send a message which requires confirmation of receipt or notice of appointment through LSS.
