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).
