The language needs of government bodies are wide and varied. From courtrooms, to public safety departments, to social workers, and public officials—every setting and client comes with unique considerations requiring language providers with the appropriate professional, personal, and specialized communication skills. LUNA has an established history as a language solution provider for city, county, state, and federal government agencies and we boast an expansive team of highly-qualified interpreters and translators to help you bridge your communication barriers.
LUNA provides language services in American Sign Language (ASL) and over 200 spoken languages including rare languages (languages of lesser diffusion). Our interpreters adhere to national standards for interpreting for those with limited English proficiency, clients who are Deaf, and the hard of hearing. We educate our clients and promote the development and use of a language access plan for your departments and agencies through seminars that can be customized to your needs. LUNA also provides cultural training and professional development opportunities for government agencies. Specialized training is available for bilingual staff who act as interpreters on the job, for service providers on best practices when using interpreters, and cultural training for all levels of government workers. In all these endeavors, LUNA aims to increase the availability of qualified interpreters to our citizens and promote equal access to government services for all individuals, irrespective of language group or disability.
