We are excited to announce that our team has been awarded a contract to provide interpretation and translation support for the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), specifically within the Farm Production and Conservation (FPAC) Mission Area. This is a significant milestone for us, and we are eager to share our journey with you.
Our Role in the FPAC Mission Area The FPAC Mission Area consists of the Farm Services Agency (FSA), the Risk Management Agency (RMA), the Natural Resources and Conservation Service (NRCS), and the Business Center. These agencies have operations across the United States, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and Guam. They are primarily located in rural communities and have a profound impact on a diverse range of individuals. Our role is to bridge the language gap and ensure that the services provided by these agencies are accessible to everyone, regardless of their language. We believe that language should never be a barrier to accessing vital services, and we are committed to making this a reality within the FPAC Mission Area.
Bridging the Language Gap We will be providing interpretation and translation support for a wide range of languages.These include Indigenous languages such as Cherokee, Choctaw, Creek, Chickasaw, Mississippi Chickasaw, and Seminole, as well as Arabic, Korean, French, Portuguese, Chinese, Russian, Hmong, Spanish, Italian, Tagalog, Japanese, Thai, Punjabi, Khmer (Cambodian), and Vietnamese. Our team of skilled interpreters and translators are ready to take on this challenge. They have been trained to handle the specific nuances and technicalities of agricultural terminology in different languages. This ensures that the information provided by the FPAC agencies is accurately communicated and understood by all.
Looking Ahead We are thrilled to embark on this journey with the USDA’s FPAC Mission Area. We understand the importance of their work and the impact it has on rural communities and the agricultural sector. By providing our language services, we hope to contribute to their mission of supporting farm production and conservation. We will continue to share updates about our work with the FPAC Mission Area on our blog. Stay tuned for more stories about our experiences, the challenges we overcome, and the people we help along the way. Thank you for being a part of our journey. Together, we can break down language barriers and create a more inclusive and accessible agricultural community.
