Interpreter Referral List
PACE provides a list of interpreters for businesses, organizations and agencies. The list is updated every 3 months. PACE works with the Illinois Deaf and Hard of Hearing Commission and follows the Interpreter for the Deaf Licensure Act of 2007.
The Interpreter for the Deaf Licensure Act of 2007
The Interpreter for the Deaf Licensure Act of 2007 became effective on September 12, 2007. The law requires interpreters to have a color-coded license in order to provide interpreting services after January 1, 2009. This assures interpreter skill levels are appropriate for the interpreting setting. For instance, court and medical interpreting require a high skill level due to the complexity and significance of accuracy.
