Language Services

Roanoke County is committed to ensuring equitable access to all services and resources available to our citizens, residents, and visitors, regardless of the language they speak. We have partnered with Voiance to provide language interpreters and translators for anyone who is deaf, hard of hearing, or has limited English proficiency. If English is not your primary language, Roanoke County will provide translation services. This service is free and is provided for all programs, activities, and services offered by the County. 

For help in Spanish, call 1-844-794-1437.

For help in a language other than English, call 1-540-283-8124. You will then be connected to an interpreter who speaks your language, and he or she will connect you to the person you want to reach.
