Hawaii Language Bank


Recognizing that almost 25% of Hawaii population speak a language other than English at home (identified as Limited English Proficiency or LEP), PGC's Hawaii Language Bank ensures language access to the community. 


PGC’s Hawaii Language Bank offers interpretation and translation services to the community in more than 35 languages.  With a pool of over 40 bilingual interpreters and translators, the Hawaii Language Bank provides our multilingual community services to local agencies, organizations and other community groups in need of bilingual services.


PGC operates its Hawaii Language Bank that provides to the community professional and certified interpretation and translation services to support immigrants and refugees access social services, deal with immigration and legal issues and resolve transition arrangements.
