Requests for Translation (Staff Only)

How to request a translation:
Online translation requests are a way for staff members within the Folsom Cordova Unified School District to request document translation and in-person (oral) translators through our Translation Services Department.

We take pride in handling your request with professionalism and care.  Each request is reviewed and then assigned to an appropriate translation specialist.
All oral requests require 72 hours notice.  Every effort will be made to complete all written requests within 5-7 days.  Rush requests will be handled on a case by case basis.

Requests that are not submitted through the Translation Services request forms will not be completed.
