Mortgage Translations Home


Welcome to the Mortgage Translations clearinghouse, an easy-to-use collection of translated documents and tools to assist lenders, servicers, housing counselors, and others in helping ​mortgage borrowers who have limited English proficiency​ (LEP). Created by FHFA, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac in collaboration with industry, consumer, and government partners, the Mortgage Translations clearinghouse contains resources such as translated documents, borrower education materials, a standardized glossary of mortgage terms, and more.

The site currently contains Spanish-language and traditional Chinese-language documents and resources. Materials in other languages will be added through 2019 and 2020. See the Language Access Multi-Year Plan (published May 2018) for more details.​​​​

* UPDATE: In October 2019, the clearinghouse was updated to include additional documents from Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and government agencies and a traditional Chinese-language glossary.
