Who We Are
Why We RISE
In our pool of nationally certified interpreters, we have professionals qualified to fit any situation. RISE administrators are also certified ASL interpreters. Many agencies advertise a one-stop shop serving all languages and consequently have mediocre knowledge and services. On the other hand, at RISE, we specialize in ASL interpreting and focus on what we do best!Learn More
Services We Offer
Providing qualified Medical Interpreters is one of the most fundamental ways a healthcare institution can respect the rights of deaf patients.
If it’s for a business meeting, presentation, job interviews, training, or press conference, we have all your bases covered.
One of the greatest factors affecting the education of deaf and hard of hearing students in the regular education setting is the interpreter.
We provide captioning for recorded events so your entire audience can follow along.
We can give ASL fluency evaluations to employees looking to qualify for bilingual status.
For non-live events, our interpreters can work with pre-recorded messages to bring viewers an accurate ASL interpretation.
The EIPA is used by more than half of the country to determine competency for educational interpreters. California requires a score of 4.0 or above to interpret in the K-12 system.
RISE offers the EIPA year-round!
