Every child deserves a well-rounded education and parents have a right to be informed about their child’s performance – in their language. School districts hire professional interpreters through IU to help students transition from their native tongue to English or to communicate with parents, guardians and the community.

We contract with skilled linguists to provide our nation’s schools with interpreters for meetings, assemblies, after school activities and other situations where a conversation takes place. Most districts choose to provide services on an as-needed basis, for the most common spoken languages in the area.

These academic interpreting services help foreign exchange students and students with limited English proficiency exceed in their studies, feel comfortable in the campus environment and understand what’s expected of them. Contact us for an in-person appointment for 200 spoken languages and/or American Sign Language.

Phone interpreting appointments are available for staff who need to speak with a parent or guardian when an in-person interpreter is not available. This service works best during meetings or conferences on speaker phone.
