Interpretation and Translation

​​​​​​​​​​​​​As paradigms shift within education, there is a need to integrate new terminology and make it comprehensible to our parents and the community at large by utilizing a consistent vernacular across various languages.

We provide a variety of multilingual and multicultural services that focuses on providing support, coaching, and language assistance for interpretation and translation needs as it relates to cultural awareness and the latest state-adopted terminologies and glossaries in several languages. We fulfill requests for oral interpretation (e.g., Individualized Education Plans, Parent/Teacher Meetings and/or conferences, Board Meetings, etc.), and for translation of written materials.

We also offer Language Assessments of language fluency of school staff either individually or in-group. The language assessment is offered in an oral and a written modality.

Our services are open to all school districts, charter schools, and learning centers in Orange County and its surroundings.

If you would like to become an interpreter or translator for OCDE, please contact Natalia Abarca at or 714-966-4437.
