Telephonic Interpretation

ISAN member agencies are assigned a unique code that can be used to access a telephone interpreter through Pacific Interpreters in more than 200 hundred languages-- 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days per year.

Each time the interpretation service is used, the advocate/agency is required to submit a short reporting form documenting their usage. The form takes less than a minute to complete and should be scanned and emailed to [email protected] with “INTERPRETATION” in the subject line within 3 business days. 

Failure to submit Telephonic Interpretation Usage Forms in a timely manner could result in your access to the service being terminated.
