Certified Employees Database
is a database of bilingual county employees who have been tested and
certified at either the basic (oral interpretation only) or advanced
level (oral interpretation and written translation) to provide language
assistance to departments and staff or to directly communicate with
customers in other languages. Certified employees can be used
by other departments in addition to their own job needs.
Center Language Bank is
a searchable online database made of community volunteers. Volunteers
are to be contacted only by County staff or nonprofits who have
registered with the Language Bank. Use the link above to
register. Contact Molly
Callaway of Volunteer Center for
questions and details or to sign up as a community volunteer.
