Established in 1986, Community Interpreter Services (CIS) assists persons with limited English proficiency (LEP) in accessing legal, medical, educational and corporate services through the provision of interpretation and written translation. We partner with more than 150 trained interpreters and translators, who collectively are fluent in over 90 languages. All of our contract interpreters have a certificate from a verified interpreter training program and go through a CORI background check, a monthly Office of Inspector General check, sign confidentiality and HIPAA statements, and many have all the immunizations as required by MA Department of Public Health guidelines for Health Care Personnel.
We are members of the American Translators Association, the International Medical Interpreters Association, and the Association of Language Companies. We are an authorized vendor under the Massachusetts Statewide Contract for Professional Services.
