Multilingual Consortium

​​​​​​ 

 

Language serves as a bridge between cultures as much as a tool for communication. In the 21st century, we are facing a change in our educational system, including multilingual classrooms preparing students to be college, career, and civic ready.

 
The Multilingual Consortium is a professional network that supports high quality translation and interpretation services. The group is open to all districts, charter schools, and learning centers in and outside of Orange County and serves as both a repository distribution point for language resources as well as a collective of expertise in the field.


Consortium goals:
• Develop a county-wide directory of translators by language
• Identify language translation and interpretation needs across the county
• Facilitate communication and networking across districts to support effective and consistent translation and interpretation throughout the county
• Gather, develop, and distribute language resources


We encourage you to invite your district’s translators/interpreters to attend Consortium meetings on a monthly basis.
