Sign Language Interpreting Services
  

Staff:
    TSS provides an experienced, caring staff of hearing and deaf interpreters for medical, mental health, legal, business, classroom, conference, workshop, worship, entertainment, recreational, and personal needs. All are credentialed.

    Approximately 75% are nationally certified through RID (The Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf), having earned the CT, CI, IC/TC, CSC, CLIP, or CDI-P and/or NAD (National Association of the Deaf), having earned Level IV (where Level V is the top). The remainder are credentialed by the State of Wisconsin (WITA) and have scored "1" and/or "2". Almost all have earned college degrees, and some have completed graduate programs.

     All of TSS's interpreters are fully insured through the company's professional liability and workers' compensation insurance policies. All have successfully completed a background check through the Department of Justice of the State of Wisconsin.

Availability:
    Interpreter services can be arranged throughout the State of Wisconsin 24 hours a day, every day, although evening, weekend, and legal holiday assignments are billed at a higher rate. Last minute calls are always accepted, and we will do our best to help you! But we do charge a "late call fee" for requests made 24 hours or less prior to the stated need.


Fees:
    Time is billed in fifteen-minute segments, beginning when the interpreter leaves for the assignment and concluding when the interpreter arrives at the next scheduled assignment or returns home. This is known as portal-to-portal billing. There is a two-hour minimum charge.

    Some assignments may require the services of two or more interpreters, with each one's service billed portal-to-portal.

    Service must be canceled two full business days prior to the scheduled appointment to avoid a cancellation fee.

    Please contact our office for more specific information.

Office Hours:
    Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, legal holidays excepted. (414) 964-3497 (Voice, Metropolitan Milwaukee area), (414) 964-5897 (TTY), or (888) 811-3497 (Voice, Toll Free). We will do our best to help you!
