Did you know that in San Mateo County:

  • 35% of residents are foreign-born
  • 46% speak a language other than English
  • 100+ languages are spoken

With support from the Board of Supervisors, all County staff now have access to interpretation services for over 200 unique languages. Residents can visit any County department and be helped with the language of their choice. Look for a language idenitification card or ask for interpretation services. The new service is easy, quick and efficient! 

Below you can find the Language Access and Interpretation services resolution unanimously signed by the Board of Supervisors supporting these new language services for our community.

County employees can visit the Sharepoint intranet for more information and instructions on how to utilize the interpretation services.
