In Progress

Touch-screen translation devices are rotating through 15 public buildings during the six-month pilot.

Chandler is also testing a mobile broadcast feature whereby a user can translate a presentation by a single speaker through their smartphone. User and staff surveys evaluate how well these technologies assist the city's diverse population in accessing city events and services.

Chandler launches six-month language assistance technology assessment at select city facilities | City of Chandler

CHANDLER, Ariz. – The City of Chandler is currently assessing a language translation device to help its residents and customers communicate with city staff in their native language. The device provides instant translation of 120 languages and dialects, including American Sign Language (ASL) and is compatible with a Braille keyboard providing users the ability to instantly have a real-time conversation with city staff. The intent of the device is to provide an additional communication tool, and in no way is being used to eliminate resident interaction with bilingual city staff.
