Proven Success – Eaton is the only local agency to have been awarded the “Outstanding Interpreting Service Award” from the Sacramento Deaf community.
Quality – We have partnered with a pool of RID/NAD certified interpreters who sign fluently and accurately, both expressively and receptively, and abide by a code of professional conduct.
Interpreters – Interpreting is a complex process requiring training in linguistic, cognitive, and technical skills. Eaton subcontracts with certified, professional, and experienced interpreters to provide communication and interpreting needs in a broad range of settings with a diverse range of Deaf, Hard of Hearing and Deaf-Blind consumers.
Confidential Services – Interpreters are certified by the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf, The National Association of the Deaf, the new joint certification of both organizations, and the Educational Interpreter Performance Assessment (EIPA). All certified interpreters adhere to a Code of Professional Conduct, which ensures the provision of ethical and confidential services.
Trusted and Secured – As per California State Department of Education Code (Section 45125.1), all contracted interpreters in the educational setting are fingerprinted through the California Department of Justice automated Live Scan service for criminal history background checks. All contracted interpreters placed in this setting are also in compliance with the California State Department of Education Code (Section 3051.16) related to qualification/certification requirements.
Risk Management – We carry liability insurance and a majority of the interpreters have been fingerprinted through the California Department of Justice.
Value – Our rates for services are competitively priced. Our customers receive a business agreement stating the terms of service, fees, and policy and procedure information.
