Empowering Your Community

Metaphrasis is devoted to working with ethnically and culturally diverse populations and we believe at our core, that Everyone Deserves to Be Understood.

With Metaphrasis as your interpreting and translation partner, cultivating a strong relationship with your community can be that much simpler.  By enhancing a family’s experience in a language they understand and providing the resources your staff requires, you may ultimately increase the quality of parent engagements, ensure a rich and fruitful learning environment and help your organization comply with federal regulations.

Here are just a few ways we partner with Illinois school districts to enhance communication and a family’s experience through the use of professional foreign language translations, interpreting, American Sign Language, trainings and professional development:

  • Individualized Education Program (IEP) meetings
  • Parent teacher conferences
  • Counseling sessions
  • Enrollment
  • In-class student support services
  • American Sign Language (ASL) interpreting
  • Written communications including consent forms and assessments
  • Professional development
