Language Translation Disclosure
The creation of this Mortgage Translations clearinghouse is part of a Language Access Multi-Year Plan that FHFA, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac are undertaking to improve the ability of mortgage-ready borrowers with limited English proficiency (LEP) to understand and participate in all facets of the mortgage life cycle. View the
Language Access Multi-Year Plan (published May 2018) or visit the
Language Access program page.
The Language Access Multi-Year Plan was developed based on research and feedback from lenders, servicers, borrower advocates, and LEP borrowers, as well as public input provided in response to a Request for Information issued by FHFA on
language access issues.
