It is essential that SSA employees have the tools to communicate effectively with the American public, regardless of an individual’s inability to communicate effectively in English. To achieve SSA’s commitment to providing fair and equitable service, they allow the employees who are bi-or multilingual to provide interpreter and translator services to limited English proficient (LEP) individuals. SSA maintains a Nationwide Translator Database, which our employees use to locate bi- or multilingual employees who self-identify as interpreters and/or translators. The National Translator Database is a nationwide consolidation of the Agency’s translation resources.
