Liberty Language Services believes that everyone, regardless of their language ability, should be able to access language services, especially during critical periods in their lives. Since the day that we were founded back in 2011, we’ve been firmly committed to the professional development of interpreters and championing language access.

Grants for Speakers of Languages of Lesser Diffusion

An ongoing program at Liberty Language Services that covers the cost of medical interpreter course tuition that is available to speakers of rarer languages, also known as languages of lesser diffusion (LLDs). Just as there are fewer speakers of these LLDs, there are fewer qualified and trained interpreters for their communities who work to bridge language access needs. An example of languages that qualify as LLD include:
Bambara, Bengali, Cambodian, Greek, Igbo, K’iche, Mam, Twi and Wolof.

For more information contact our Interpreter Education Department by sending an email to: education@libertylanguageservices.com or by calling 1-888-746-9108 ext 7.
