Foreign Language Resources


The National Pesticide Information Center receives thousands of questions each year from a diverse audience. In order to serve a broader portion of the community, NPIC has the ability to address questions concerning pesticides in multiple foreign languages.

A new agreement with LanguageLine Solutions connects NPIC with interpreters trained in medical and scientific terminology for real-time interpretation in more than 240 languages. Translation services are provided immediately during calls, at no cost to NPIC clientele, and language identification is available through this service.

This service is the same service used by numerous poison control centers across the United States.

The National Pesticide Information Center and the EPA are both interested in advancing environmental justice and reaching out to underserved populations. Environmental Justice is the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies. As such, NPIC has made arrangements to accommodate individuals who speak foreign languages.

Spanish Resources (Recursos en español de pesticidas)

The National Pesticide Information Center also has resources for Spanish speaking callers including Spanish speaking pesticide specialists and links to Spanish pesticide information.

If you have questions about this, or any pesticide-related topic, please call NPIC at 800-858-7378 (8:00am - 12:00pm PST), or email us at npic@ace.orst.edu.
