Face-to-Face Interpreting from LSA
There are times when an on-site professional interpreter is the best approach and LSA makes it easy!
While mobile interpreting is the fastest way to access an interpreter, there are times when on-site interpreting is more appropriate, such as lengthy meetings, group interviews, court proceedings and highly sensitive and complex medical appointments. We’ll work with you on an individual basis to help you determine when an interpreter should be at your side, rather than over the phone or at a computer.
Using our face-to-face interpreting service is easy! Just log in to our completely secure online scheduling platform, place your request and wait for your confirmation e-mail. Select from consecutive and simultaneous interpreters in over 200 languages, including American Sign Language (ASL), anywhere across the globe. Visit our FAQ page and view our face-to-face interpreting quick facts to learn more.

Qualified Interpreters & Linguists
Our interpreters and linguists are some of the most qualified in the field.
Before an interpreter or linguist is accepted into our network their qualifications are thoroughly evaluated. We put all candidates through a robust Quality Assurance Process to validate their language proficiency and assess their interpreting skills.
Our translators and linguists have the experience and education to meet your needs.
We go to great lengths to pair you with translators and linguists who are:
- Native speakers
- Subject-matter experts
- Medically and legally qualified
- ADA, HIPAA, HITECH, IDEA, CMS and Joint Commission compliant
When needed we have a large pool of on-site interpreters who have passed rigorous government background checks, acquired the necessary security clearances, and who have received the required immunizations.
All of our American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters are RID* certified and many are certified by associations such as:
- American Translators’ Association (ATA)
- Canadian Translators, Terminologists and Interpreters Council (CTTIC)
- Colegio de Traductores Publicos (CTPBA)
- Monterey Institute Graduate School of Translation & Interpretation (GSTI)
- The Translators and Interpreters Guild (TTIG)
*The Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID) serves as the national standard for ASL interpretation certification. Some states also offer their own certification. We put all of our ASL interpreters through a rigorous screening and qualification process. This ensures we provide interpreters who are best matched to your requests based on their experience, skills and credentials to your requests. Our sign language interpreters also follow the industry recognized standard Code of Professional Conduct, which includes adherence to the standards of confidential communication and a guide to ethical decision making.
We’ll do everything in our power to exceed your expectations and make sure you have a positive experience, every time.
