Welcome

  • Translation and Interpretation are services provided by the Language Assessment Development Department (LADD) which offers professional services to the schools and offices of the Pasadena Unified School District so that families and the community have equitable access to information and resources about their children's education.

    We offer two types of services:

    Interpretation (oral interpretation). Simultaneous and consecutive interpretation of PUSD-sponsored meetings is available.

    Translation (translation of written documents) to and from Spanish and other required languages. These services include: a library of translated document templates frequently used by schools; an English/Spanish glossary of terms commonly used by PUSD schools; and proofreading of documents translated by other departments or school staff.

    Translation/Interpretation services provided in the following languages:

    • Spanish
    • Armenian
    • Mandarin
    • Korean
    • Japanese
    • American Sign Language (ASL)
