What Interpreters Say About DSPA

I have lots of love for this agency. I love working for this agency because I know whatever team I am assigned to work with will be top-notch. I like that the information I receive for assignments is complete and thorough.

DSPA has a great group of interpreters. Everyone is very supportive and always willing to dialogue about the work afterwards. They are also committed to the quality of their interpreters, even providing mentoring when appropriate. DSPA makes sure to match the right interpreter with the clients’ needs. I truly feel I am valued and taken care of as an interpreter and an individual. DSPA is great at approaching interpreting coordinating from a holistic point of view. I feel honored that I get to be a part of this skilled group of interpreters.

I wanted to tell you that recent events in my career have made me more appreciative of small, personal, and personable agencies such as DSPA. I am grateful to work with you all, and I am thankful for the way you treat me and our mutual clients with genuine care.

The care DSPA takes to not only ready the interpreters for a successful experience but also to advocate for ALL of the nuances that make or break a job is outstanding. I don’t know that I’ve ever worked with an agency with such foresight, know-how, and clarity as yours.
