Mortgage Translations

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 contains documents and resources in English, Spanish, traditional Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, and Tagalog. See the Language Access Multi-Year Plan (published May 2018) and the Language Access Policy Page​ for more details.​​​​



* UPDATE:  In July 2022, the Federal Housing Finance Agency, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac added the updated Supplementary Consumer Information Form (SCIF) (Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac 1103) to the Mortgage Translations website.  The SCIF helps industry professionals collect borrower information with standardized questions about homeownership education, housing counseling, and language preference.  Additionally, the revised Mortgage Assistance Application, Borrower Solicitation Letter, Forbearance Servicer Script, and a Servicer Script for Homeowners with a Resolved COVID-19 Hardship were also added.  All of the documents are now available in English, Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, and Tagalog. ​
