This bill — the TRANSLATE Act — would require the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to make security information more accessible to non-English speaking passengers and those with vision or hearing impairments. This would entail making signage, video, audio, and online content more accessible to non-English speaking travelers at major airports.
A plan for achieving this goal would be required within a year of this bill’s passage. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) would be required to report on this bill’s implementation.
This bill’s full title is the TSA Reaching Across Nationalities, Societies, and Languages to Advance Traveler Education Act.
