Language Interpretation Services

To allow our counselors to communicate with military family members who do not speak English, Military OneSource provides simultaneous language interpretation services. This service, which is provided by phone, ensures that language will not be a barrier to family members seeking and receiving Military OneSource services. We make every effort to honor all language preferences. Language interpretation services are available to our counselors twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Military OneSource interpretation services are intended to facilitate access of Military OneSource services by individual military family members who do not speak English. For example, a non-English-speaking military spouse may use the interpretation service to talk with a Military OneSource counselor about how to find child care programs in the community, or to discuss concerns about a spouse who has returned from combat.
