Hmong Glossary, Other Interpreter Resources

The Wisconsin Court System has produced the nation's first English-Hmong glossary, a 75-page document with some 800 terms, downloadable in pdf. As of 1999, Washington had about 1200 Hmong, most living in the Seattle area. See HistoryLink article.

By the way, the Access to Justice conference next month will include a discussion of The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down, a book about the culture clash between a California hospital staff and a Hmong family.

The Wisconsin Courts site links to other material for interpreters:
