Nightingale Interpreting Services is Texas’ premier language interpreting company, since 1987. We are committed to improving conditions for the deaf, hard of hearing and blind community.
Nightingale is a woman-owned business and was established in 1987 by the Chung family. Kerry Lacsamana, Nightingale’s current owner, is dedicated to serving this often under-served segment of society – the deaf, hard of hearing and blind – by providing certified interpreters for every type of event, large and small by providing quality interpreting services through live interpreters and VRI (video remote interpreting) to the Houston community, throughout the State of Texas and beyond.
Why Certified Interpreters?
Certified interpreters are professionals who have proven skills and bona fide qualifications.
Certified interpreters are bound by strict Standards of Ethical Behavior which include three main concepts: Confidentiality, Impartiality and Integrity.
Members of the deaf community prefer a “live” interpreter and this is the most convenient, reliable, and accurate means of exchanging information with the deaf and hard of hearing .
Using impersonal remote service companies does not guarantee you effective, competent, certified interpreting.
