Interpretation refers to converting one spoken language into another spoken language using advanced listening, memory and analytical skills. Interpretation and translation are often confused with each other. They are very similar in meaning, however, translation refers to converting written words, where as interpreting is only for spoken converations.

According to LEP.gov, "Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin in programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance. National origin discrimination includes, among other things, failing to provide meaningful access to individuals who are limited English proficient (LEP). Executive Order 13166 requires federal agencies that provide federal financial assistance to develop guidance to clarify the language access obligations of recipients of such assistance. If your organization receives federal financial assistance, this mandate is of particular importance to you."
