On-Site & Remote Sign Language Interpreters
World-Class language access. The way it should always be done.
Our interpreters are skilled professionals who adhere to the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID) Code of Professional Conduct (CPC). Most of our interpreters hold national certification, and those who do not, are paired with a mentor until they reach certification. While TCS Interpreting is committed to growing new interpreters in the field, we never compromise quality. Before joining TCSI, all interpreters are required to pass a rigorous screening process to ensure competency. ASL interpreting services are provided in both on-site and remote settings. Because interpreters are typically generalists, TCS Interpreting works with Deaf and hard of hearing professionals to identify language demands in their respective fields. Our interpreters then study to attain competency in these specialized settings. TCSI provides these services in the following settings:
On-Site interpreting is when an interpreter is in the same room with the hearing and Deaf consumer.
Video Remote Interpreting
Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) is when an interpreter joins the meeting via video. Both the hearing and Deaf consumers are in the same room, while the interpreter is connected using a VRI platform.
Certified Deaf Interpreters
A Certified Deaf Interpreter (CDI) is a specialist who provides cultural and linguistic expertise in an interpreted interaction. A CDI is often a native signer with a lifetime of experience as a Deaf individual, and trained to ensure effective communication.
Highly qualified and trained interpreters are needed to work in legal settings—particularly in court and law enforcement proceedings, where matters involving high-risk and personal freedoms are often the focus.
Medical interpreters specialize in interpreting between patients and doctors, nurses, lab technicians and other healthcare providers. It is critical that interpreters are trained and qualified in medical terminology, so they can accurately interpret medically-related interactions.
TCS Interpreting provides interpreters in settings which require a strong proficiency in technical systems and terminology. These settings include but are not limited to; Information Technology, Finance and Banking, Science and Engineering.
The federal government is the largest employer of Deaf and hard of hearing people in the United States. TCS Interpreting maintains a presence in numerous federal agencies. These entities are committed to providing access that enables their employees to be productive, and contributing members of the federal workforce.
