11 ways Government Uses Interpreting & Translation

The US Federal Government has many uses for interpreting and translation. From national security to international trade, the government relies on these services to help us understand what is being said around us.

This blog post will tell you about 11 ways the us federal government uses interpreting and translation.

Too Much To Interpret & Translate Without Help

Think of it, from official state forms for various levels of government to websites to provide access to information online from those who are looking for government benefits to those who want to travel abroad, it’s far too much for the United States Government to do without some assistance. This is one area CIT has assisted our federal and state government officials. 

The President's Translation Needs

Everyone has witnessed international news conferences with interpreters just outside of frame to provide consecutive interpreting. But did you know the President creates a huge amount of documents that need translation? Here are a just a few.

A presidential memorandum is used when an issue doesn’t require Congressional approval but still needs input from various agencies.

A presidential proclamation is a policy that the President declares about how federal agencies should go about their business or handle something that they have jurisdiction over. They are not mandatory and don’t require any action from Congress, but do need to be published in the Federal Register as per The Administrative Procedures Act.

A presidential determination is a decision by the president about how federal agencies should go about their business or handle something that they have jurisdiction over. They are not mandatory and don’t require any action from Congress, but do need to be published in the Federal Register as per The Administrative Procedures Act.

This document is issued by Congress if they disagree with something the President has done. It tells the president that a specific action is not allowed and goes into effect immediately upon signing, unless vetoed by the president himself or overridden with a presidential veto override.

An executive agreement does not go through congressional approval but can be changed, modified, amended, or abandoned by a future president.

An executive order goes into effect immediately upon signing and outlines how government agencies should go about their business or handle something that they have jurisdiction over. They can be vetoed by Congress or overridden with a presidential veto.

In Conclusion

When it comes to needs in interpreting and translation, no other organization or entity needs them more than the United States government.
