Translating & language assistance

With almost one in three people living on the Gold Coast born overseas, our city reflects a wide range of cultures, languages and religions.

We are creating better access to City services and resources for all residents and visitors with multilingual resources and translation services.

Language assistance

If you need an interpreter, call the Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS National) on 13 14 50 and ask them to telephone City of Gold Coast on 1300 465 326. You will be asked what your preferred language is. This is a free service.

Our business hours are 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
