Language of Our Heart

We all have the right to communicate and engage in the language in which we feel most comfortable – the language of our heart.

Language is Power

At Community Language Cooperative we make sure that we are able to provide interpretation, translation and language justice training to ensure that everyone is able to participate in society and engage civically in the language of their heart.

How can we help you?

Interpretation

We believe in providing professional, quality interpretation into all represented languages.

Language Justice

Come with us on a deep dive into the principles of Language Justice as it relates to social justice movements.

Translation

We offer professional translation of written documents, speeches, content in books or any other text to another language.

Facilitation

Give us an objective for a meeting, event or presentation and we will provide a space of inclusiveness where that goal can be achieved by valuing and respecting everyone’s voice.

Interpreter Spotlight

Meet one of CLC’s interpreters and hear about the unique role they play in supporting our mission.

Jessica Gamez

Jessica holds a unique skill set, the ability to interpret in English, Spanish, and American Sign Language both simultaneously and consecutively. A skillset so rare she is one of a few such translators in the country. Jess was attracted to the shared mission of the Community Language Cooperative, to provide language justice and access to those who need it. And, the deaf community is commonly oppressed in communication environments. Having one person provide the connection between three languages eases the communication for everyone involved.

When not translating, you can find Jessica dancing, especially Latin dance, or exploring her passion for new technology.
