National Interpreting Service
We are very professional and reliable. We work with the
State of Oregon, Coordinated Care Organizations, several
hospitals/health care networks and private insurance
companies, as well as organizations such as law offices,
federal government, and non-profit community organizations.
We started out as Anderson Interpreting Service over thirty years ago. In 2012, we became National Interpreting Service, Inc. to reflect our broader service coverage. It is an honor to provide quality interpretation for many clients across the state of Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Some of our professional affiliations include: Oregon Association of the Deaf (OAD), Oregon Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (ORID), National Association of the Deaf (NAD), Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID), Oregon Society of Translators and Interpreters (OSTI) and Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters (CCHI).

We have partnered with a pool of RID certified sign language interpreters who sign fluently and accurately, both expressively and receptively and abide by the RID Code of Professional Conduct. The owner of the company, Cynthia Anderson, is an RID certified interpreter with over 20 years experience. Since she is fluent in the language, she is able to work with the interpreters to assure a positive experience for all. Cynthia makes sure that all scheduling is done with every detail attended to so the communication experience is a positive one.
