Central Maryland Gains Established Sign Language Interpreting Firm
Maryland Interpreting Services dba:We Interpret.Net and We Interpret Linked will relocate offices from Baltimore County to Howard County to better serve the Baltimore - Washington metro. The new office, staffed with nationally certified Sign Language Interpreters, allows easy access to interpreting services for all deaf clients, patients and customers.
In areas such as the Washington / Baltimore metro area, interpreters are in high demand and short supply. Often interpreters are not available and the situation is magnified by the fact that interpreters can spend as much as half of their day traveling from job to job. Costs of travel time and mileage are often passed on to the company responsible for paying for this service. "The new, 6990 Columbia Gate Way Drive, location will allow for reduced costs, rapid response and access to a larger pool of interpreters," states Tauna Faries, President of WeInterpret. Additionally, a mini-call center for Video Remote Interpreting will be opened and the Louis Frisino conference/training room will be dedicated on July 13, 2011.
Maryland Interpreting Services, a Maryland corporation doing business as WeInterpret.Net and WeInterpretLinked.Com was established in 1996. Under the direction of President, Tauna Faries and VP Brian Ambrose, Nationally Certified Interpreter the firm has enjoyed rapid growth. Since its establishment, it has provided some 6 million hours of interpreting services to some 1050 customers through offices in, Virginia, Maryland and New Mexico. Staff Interpreters and Independent Sub-Contractors numbering over 1200 provide on-site interpreting and added VRI in 2007.
IP based video and audio communication technology allows an interpreter in a call center to be seen and heard at a remote site wherever business interactions occur between Deaf and Hearing persons. A light weight, portable Video Phone is required at the business site and at the call center interpreter work station. High speed Internet service is required at both sites as well.
