Sign Language Interpreter Contracts and Resources Program

Certified Sign Language Interpreters who work through the Master State Contract, need to register with the Office of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Contractors will only assign approved Interpreters to your requests.

Approved Interpreters have active credentials and have passed the annual DSHS background screening.

Below is a list of approved Interpreters, the date of their initial Certification, and their current rates. Rates update on a quarterly basis on January, April, July, and October. You may need to update your link to this page often. 

Please note, there are supplemental rates for Legal, Medical and Mental Health appointments. If you see an Interpreter listed more than once, with additional rate information, these specific appointment rates apply.

Deaf Interpreters are specialists that have particular linguistic knowledge and cultural experience which are often fundamental for successful communication access, and essential in high stakes situations.

Deaf Interpreters 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 an Interpreter Referral 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 ODHH.
