“I have nothing but high praise for Kim Eaton / Eaton Interpreting Services in Sacramento and the sign language interpreters with whom she works. I had a very difficult job to fill, and I was flat out turned down by several of the large services. Eaton Interpreting was able to find fabulous interpreters for my student. I can completely rely on Eaton to find quality, reliable, American Sign Language interpreters. I wouldn’t recommend any other service!”

“We have used Eaton Interpreting Services at our Toast Master meetings at the State Department of Housing and Community Services in Sacramento. The sign language interpreters add so much to our meetings. Even though they are not often given advance notice of what speeches they will be interpreting, they are always dependable to come early before the meetings begin. They interpret with such good voice variety and enthusiasm and bring so much life to the meetings. I also compliment Eaton Interpreting on their efficient scheduling of interpreters. It has been a pleasure to work with your company.”
Diane Allmond, Dept. of Housing & Community Development

Monica Handley, State Healthcare Analyst
“Eaton Interpreting Services in Sacramento has always accepted last minute requests for sign language interpreters when other services wouldn’t. I really appreciate their business.”
Pam Kovash, Deaf Consumer, El Dorado National Forest
“My background in interpreting and education spans almost 45 years, including teaching ASL before it was a language and providing interpreting services shortly after RID was created, often in a volunteer capacity. Primarily my work has been in the area of teaching – sign language, American Sign Language, Deaf children at Schools for the Deaf, and interpreting students. Additionally, I have managed interpreting services, interpreter education, conducted research, and published. My philosophy, as an educator is that one needs to consistently practice the subject that one is teaching. Because of that, I have been a community interpreter for several decades and thus, worked through many different interpreting agencies. I am proud to state that none have demonstrated the wisdom, care, practicality, knowledge, thoroughness, skill, and accuracy that Eaton Interpreting Services demonstrates. The owner/president, Kim Eaton, and Schedulers of Eaton know the art of interpreting services and all that it encompasses. These individuals treat all customers (community interpreters, hearing and Deaf consumers) as equal partners. The consumers I meet feel confident and know, without a doubt, that they are receiving the best possible service, not because it’s me at the site, but because it is Eaton that they work with.”
Marilyn Mitchell, MS, MMP, CSC, OIC:V/S, NIC Master, RID Certified Interpreter
“I had the distinct pleasure of working as a freelance interpreter with Eaton Interpreting Services, Inc early on in the inception of the agency. I have had the good fortune of observing the dynamic growth of this very reputable agency due to the inherent ethical business practices in which Kim Eaton conducts all aspects of the business. I went on to establish my own agency and attribute much of its success to the excellent role modeling and support of Kim and Eaton Interpreting Services, Inc. It is a model agency whereby the clients are insured of excellent interpreters, the interpreters can always count on a solid team to work with and support from the agency, and the consumers will always be assured of efficient, accurate and professional interpreting services.”
Shelly Browning, CI & CT, RID Certified Interpreter & Founder, The Nature of Interpreting, LLC
“In the day to day workings of our lives, we sometimes take for granted the gifts that we have. Eaton Interpreting is a gift to me and our community both professionally and personally!

I could not do my job without your amazing interpreters and behind the scenes team in the office …. My “voice” and my teaching would be mute without the seamless and highly talented skills of your interpreters! Without the support of the staff in the office, my day would be for not. Without the gift of Kim and her company, our students would not be served. Kim’s personal attention is unmatched!

Recently a student emailed and made the following comment, “The normalcy and ease of communication were an example of the equality of Deaf and hearing people as well as the strength of ASL as a language. The communication in class was so smooth that I almost always forgot the interpreters were there.”

The Eaton Team has also advocated and provided my family and I qualified and caring interpreters during special and sensitive events in our personal lives. Inviting an Eaton interpreter into our private family events has proven time and time again to be a gift!

Thank you for all that you do for me and my family, students, and mostly for our Deaf Community! Hands Waving to all of you!”

Dr. Lisalee D. Egbert, Former Deaf Studies Program Coordinator, California State University, Sacramento

I have been impressed with their professionalism and willingness to interpret in diverse settings.”

I appreciate being able to turn to you all for advice and being able to trust all of the amazing people I get to work with! I am so proud to be a part of the Eaton family ~ I’m one lucky interpreter!”
Jacqui Baldridge, NIC, Ed-K-12, RID Certified Interpreter
“I have been a professional sign language interpreter for over 20 years. My experiences with Eaton Interpreting Services have always been professional, caring and all around stellar. Recently a Deaf patient I worked with at a local medical facility was eager to share with me about an experience they had with an Eaton interpreter. This particular Deaf patient is from another country and neither ASL nor English is their first language. The patient explained they had experienced a terrible interaction with staff members within a large and complex medical system. The patient was frustrated, felt mistreated, and wished to file a complaint. The interpreter could have said, “I’m sorry about your experience. Good luck. Bye.” Instead, the interpreter accompanied the patient to the customer service department to interpret the complaint. The interpreter then sat and translated the experience from ASL to written English on the complaint form. This allowed the patient to express themselves in a language most comfortable to them. All of this was outside of the original medical appointment. It is interpreters that truly care about Deaf people, and the access they deserve, that are drawn to Eaton Interpreting Services. Interpreters that go above and beyond as a matter of business are valued at Eaton. I am honored to work with this caliber of an interpreting agency. The Deaf patient summed it up perfectly by signing, “Eaton THAT!”
Cheryl Gallon, CI & CT, NAD V, RID & NAD Certified Interpreter

There is no reason to look beyond Eaton for your interpreting needs!”
