Use Cases



Legal Interpreting



Medical & Mental Health Interpreting



Special Language Needs

Legal Interpreting

Legal interpreting requires training and education in topics of law, protocol, and in interpreting strategies unique to courtroom settings and legal proceedings. We’ll work with you to determine appropriate interpreter staffing strategies and identify communication access issues that may impact a case.

Medical & Mental Health Interpreting

Using an interpreter in healthcare settings allows providers to focus on patient care and for patients to focus on their own health. Research shows health outcomes improve with the use of an interpreter between non-English speaking patients and providers. Two-way communication allows patients to ask questions, raise concerns, and fully understand instructions.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you can’t find an answer to your question here, our team would be happy to help. You can reach us via the form below. 

In some states, yes. Legal interpreting requirements vary, but Sorenson can supply certified legal interpreters for every state that requires them. Even in states that do not require certification, our court interpreters have specialized training and education in law and interpreting techniques for court proceedings. 

Interpreters working with patients and providers strictly adhere to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and never disclose protected health information outside of private conversations between the patient and medical staff. All of our healthcare interpreters receive annual training in HIPAA regulations. 

A person who is DeafBlind has limited or no hearing and vision. In many cases, individuals have some use of one or both senses, but at levels that impact their use of signed and spoken language. 

 

Certified Deaf interpreters (CDIs) have a native understanding and expression of language that allows them to draw meaning from Deaf individuals who were not allowed to learn sign language, so they created their own. CDIs can ensure native accuracy for news conferences or advisories when public safety is paramount.
