The wallet-sized I need an interpreter card is designed to assist non-English speakers to request an interpreter when they need to communicate with an English speaker. Once a non-English speaker’s language has been identified, the required language can be written on the card for the client to use again in the future.

These stickers are designed to fit along the back of a card (such as a Medicare card) or the back of a mobile phone.
