Translating and Interpreting Service

Council also uses the Australian Government's Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS). The telephone service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and is accessible from anywhere in Australia for the cost of a local call.

TIS can be used to call us if you need an interpreter to help you with Council information.

To use the service, please call the TIS on 13 14 50 and ask them to put you through to Wollongong City Council on (02) 4227 7111.
