Interpreting Agencies

Adjacent Space, in line with its mission to promote visual-tactile accessibility and equity in the community, is continuing to build resources for our community at large. One of those key components of accessibility is interpreting services. A survey has been sent to each entity that has been identified as a business or organization that coordinates and provides interpreting services outside of their own entity for some form of reimbursement or payment in the state of Alabama.

The written policy that governs and guides entities that coordinate interpreting services is the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf's (RID) CPC as well as RID's Standard Practice Paper for Professional Sign Language Interpreting Agencies.

 

Adjacent Space will has listed each entity's name and is marked as:

  • "Not yet responded"

  • "Not an interpreting agency" (due to answering the prerequisite questions as "no")

  • Or list the answers and contact information that are provided an interpreting agency entity

The prerequisite questions are the following:

  • "Is your entity an interpreting agency?"

  • "Is your entity adhering to RID's CPS and RID's Practice Papers?"

  • "Does your entity coordinate paid interpreting services within the community (outside of your own entity)?"
