Sign Language Interpreter Contracts and Resources Program

Approved Interpreters and rate brackets

All our approved and registered Sign Language Interpreters are certified (or have received credentials as qualified by ODHH) and abide by the Code of Professional Conduct of the National Association of the Deaf and the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf.

The hourly rates for interpreters depend on their number of years of experience since their initial certification. After every five years of experience, interpreters’ rates move up to the next rate bracket. This happens quarterly on the first day of January, April, July, and October. If initial certification was on one of those dates, they are moved up at the next quarterly rate bracket change. Rates also depend on whether the appointment is in King County or any other county. If held virtually, the appointment location is considered to be where it would be held in person.

Interpreters work through our Contractors (booking agencies). Our Contractors' contact information, service area coverage, and booking fees can be seen here:  Contractor Information. Please note we have a list of freelance/independent contractors in the first table, then agencies, on that page.

Deaf Interpreters are specialists who are often fundamental for successful communication access, and essential in high stakes situations. DIs have distinct formative linguistic, cultural, and life experiences that enable nuanced comprehension influenced by region, culture, age, literacy, education, social economic status, as well as physical, cognitive, and mental health challenges. If an interpreter, or contractor (agency) recommends a Deaf Interpreter for a specific appointment, the recommendation is made to ensure effective communication. If you need more justification or clarification, please feel free to contact ODHHThere is a separate table below which includes our list of registered Deaf Interpreters
