What is the UW-Extension Language Access Team?
UW Cooperative Extension provides educational programming throughout the state of Wisconsin. The Language Access Team was created in August of 2016 and consists of a team of language professionals who provide support for programming carried out by the organization. We develop and coordinate the use of multilingual communication (translation, interpretation, outreach materials) in programming efforts that serve Wisconsin’s linguistically and culturally diverse communities. Our efforts bridge language-based communication barriers and help Cooperative Extension expand the reach of its programming to underserved audiences. While the Language Access Team receives requests for translation and interpretation in a variety of languages, over 85% of our projects involve working within the Spanish-English language pair.
