Your knowledge of the needs of the deaf and hard of hearing was a tremendous resource for us.
— Linda R. Tompkins, The Hospital of Central Connecticut, Hartford, Connecticut

Every ASL Interpreter is Nationally Certified through the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID), has passed the NIC examination test offered by RID and all have current certification with RID.

Most of our ASL interpreters are CODA’s (Child of Deaf Adults). We know each interpreter personally including their family and family background. All of our interpreters are deeply devoted to the deaf and deaf culture.

Our foreign language interpreters, spanning over 180 languages, are also subject to stringent professional standards, with native proficiency in the language they are interpreting for, as well as English. All interpreters possess industry-accepted certification credentials and are subject to performance assessments and quality control.

Quality Regulation

When seconds matter, having the service is invaluable to us.
— Robert Anthony, Emergency Department Director

Each interpreter takes 80+ hours Continuing Education Units (CEUs) over a two year period to maintain national certification and participates in workshops and conferences which include Medical, Mental Health and other key focus areas.

Annually, every interpreter is required to provide proof of current credentials such as RID certification and Professional Liability Insurance.

DT Interpreting's RID certified Manager of Interpreters monitors and evaluates each interpreter for skill level and professionalism remotely.
