If you find it hard to communicate in English, the WA Interpreter Card will let government agencies know you need an interpreter and in what language.
The WA Interpreter Card has been developed in accordance with the WA Language Services Policy.
The 'Information for Communities' document below explains how to use the card. To get a WA Interpreter Card, email OMI and we will post the card to you.
