Translation & Interpretation

Welcome!

The office of Translation & Interpretation provides language support to assist in the communication of academic information between schools and parents in an effort to increase involvement in school activities and district-wide functions.

This full range of language services are designed to help in AISD’s mission of providing a comprehensive educational experience to prepare our students for college, career and life. 

We offer a variety of translation & interpretation services to ensure language access for students—and parents so they may have an active role in the student’s education. 

For support with Admission, Review and Dismissal (ARD) meetings, please contact the Special Education Department at 512-414-4063.

Documents submitted for translation will be processed in the order received and typical turn-around time is within 10 business days although this may vary due to availability, complexity of the document, and length.
