Interpretation in Wards and Branches

This site includes some basic information that will be of help to Church leaders in wards and branches who need to arrange for interpretation and also to individual members who are asked to provide that service.

In contrast to the formal interpretation of General Conference and other major events, a less visible form of interpretation occurs regularly in wards and branches. The need for interpretation may arise in block meetings, stake conferences, social activities, interviews, home teaching visits, etc. Such interpretation efforts do not reach worldwide audiences, but they have significant impact in blessing the lives of individuals.
