TLC Translates Documents for Special Census

TLC translated documents for a special census for the city of Smyrna, TN, into Spanish, Arabic, and Chinese so that residents who speak those languages can fully participate. If the city population has grown as much as city leaders estimate, it could mean an additional $500k a year in shared state revenue for the city.

“Eileen and her team at the Tennessee Language Center have been fabulous to work with for our upcoming special census project requiring the translation of various forms,” says Amber Hobbs with the City of Smyrna. “From initial contact, through correspondence, and up to the delivery of the translated materials, working with the Tennessee Language Center has been a seamless process!”

This project is being funded by the Language Collaborative for Municipal Officials (LCMO) partnership with the Municipal Technical Advisory Service (MTAS).
