Isabel Ceballos, District Translator
Leander ISD is a fast-growing, multicultural school district in Central Texas. Our diverse population reflects many languages and cultures. Translation Services through the ELL (English Language Learners) Department provides translation and interpretation services to support our students and employees to improve communication, enrich the educational environment and effectively perform in their day-to-day operations and learning.
The most common languages requested are Spanish, American Sign Language, and we also accommodate services for Braille and other foreign languages, such as Korean, Vietnamese, Russian and Mandarin among others, on a needed basis for our school operational activities and in compliance with federal regulations, such as ADA, Title I, IDEA, and also for the vital areas necessary for the success of LEP students and families.
To support our schools and administrators, Translation Services has a streamlined system through Eduphoria that makes it easy to submit your requests and guarantee a prompt response and completion on deadlines.
Start by logging into Eduphoria with your district log-in credentials. From the Eduphoria welcome screen, navigate to "Helpdesk."
At the bottom of the Helpdesk page, look for "Document Translation" or "Meeting Interpretation" (indicated by the red arrows in the above image).
Please note: We do not translate copyrighted materials unless the proper permission has been obtained and verified by the department.
Tip: Avoid sending PDFs if you can; send the original work to help keep the right format and design.
Software and Platforms supported: MS Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher), Illustrator, InDesign, Google Dcos, eSped (for the Special Education department only).
Interpretation Meetings: Interpreters are assigned for school meetings when requested by a department, for situations such as: ARD meetings, 504, Title I, Counseling, Parent/Teacher meetings, Open Houses, administrative meetings that require an interpreter present. Please do not schedule an interpreter yourself. Instead, follow the same guidelines to request one through Eduphoria to ensure the service and assignment is fulfilled and properly documented. Please note, interpreters cannot be scheduled for extracurricular or personal activities – only academic/district sponsored activities.
