Why Choose HASA Interpreting?

Interpreting Services

HASA’s interpreting services are not a one size fits all service. Interpreter requests are viewed as unique and customized for those we serve. Let us connect you with interpreters who fit your needs using our trusted and personalized placement process- a process that considers how we make stronger communities who strive to include people by providing the best interpreters.

For over 30 years, HASA has been the nonprofit cornerstone for our customers’ interpreting needs. Our interpreting team continues to provide the flexibility and responsiveness only a true community interpreting service provider can offer. Our exceptional customer service combined with state-of-the-art technology provides our customers with the best experience. We look forward to serving you!

Customized Interpreter Matched for your Industry

Interpreter requests are viewed as unique and customized for those we serve. Our schedulers work hard to complete every interpreter request and in doing so, they curate a list of potential interpreters appropriate for the request based on interpreters’ skill levels, type of sign language needed (ASL, signed English, etc.), gender preference, and other special considerations. Then HASA schedulers contact that curated list to identify and confirm HASA independent contractors who would be the best fit and are available to work requests.

Our extensive network of nationally and state certified interpreters means that we can match you with an interpreter experienced in your field. Our interpreters are experienced working in medical, education, legal, government, and business environments. 

Our interpreters’ high-level of attention also includes maintaining HIPAA compliant protocols and confidentiality agreements so all work-related information is secure and confidential.

Easy to Schedule

Whether it is for same-day requests or unique rush interpreting needs, HASA can meet your needs. Once you make an interpreting request, our HASA scheduling team will begin scheduling your ASL interpreter. Our team finds a specialized interpreter and provides you or your company a service you can trust to be accurate, accepted, and timely. HASA delivers peace of mind for our customers- providing prompt confirmations for your ASL interpreting services. 

World-Class ASL Interpreters

HASA provides qualified interpreters who have mastered the communication and cultural competencies, as well as critical thinking abilities, needed to interpret effectively. Interpreters work between American Sign Language (ASL) and spoken English while exercising keen attention to detail to ensure accuracy.

Interpreters become certified by the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf. And HASA maintains a multi-layered quality control assurance system that exceeds industry standards. It is composed of three primary components overseen by multiple members of the HASA interpreting team:

  • Pre-Assignment (testing, vetting of interpreters and certifications, analysis of request requirements)
  • During Assignment (real-time assessment by trained interpreters)
  • Post-Assignment (follow up, feedback)

The quality control process is dynamic and HASA collects and incorporates feedback from stakeholders into its procedures. This allows HASA to not only keep up with industry standards, but to also be an industry leader.

Making Communities Better

As the only nonprofit interpreting firm in Maryland, HASA is intensely dedicated to philanthropy, gratitude, and community service. We strive to make a positive impact in the lives of those we serve. We show our support with gifts of both time and service. Our clients allow us to donate pro bono interpreting services so that our entire community is connected by language. Customers choose HASA’s interpreting for their ASL interpreting needs because of the difference HASA makes in local communities.
