Service Policies

For occupational safety and quality assurance reasons, assignments that are near 1 hour or more in length may require 2 interpreters to work together. This decision rests with the interpreting agency and depends upon the nature of the job. Sometimes assignments less than 1 hour will require two interpreters depending on the nature of the assignment. We will advise you of our decision in advance. Payments are due upon receipt of invoice unless other arrangements have been made in advance. Late Payment Penalties: $25.00 per 30 days past due plus any collection service fees.

Any video or audio recording of Interpreters requires prior ARRAIGNMENT AND CONSENT.

Cancellations and Changes

Interpreting requests cancelled or their duration changed less than 2 business days (48 business-hours) in advance will be billed the 2 hour minimum per interpreter if 2 hours or less were reserved. If more than 2 hours were reserved the fee will be for the entire time reserved per interpreter.

Cancellations must be emailed to partners@partnersincommunicationllc.com or phoned in to 800-975-8150 at which time a confirmation of the cancellation will be sent to the requester. There must be enough lead-time to receive the message, process the cancellation and send confirmations. Please allow at least 15-30 minutes processing time; possibly more during busy morning hours. Changes that need to be made after business hours (6:30 pm PST) will not be accepted until the following morning unless they are called in and confirmed by our overnight staff (Ext 805). Cancellations are not final until confirmations have been sent back to the requester.
PLEASE NOTE: Phone messages are monitored 24/7. If you are close to the 48 business-hours mark, please consider placing a call in order to expedite the process. Example of 48 business-hours advanced notice: A cancellation for a job taking place on a Monday must be received no later than the job’s start time on the Thursday prior. Saturday and Sunday do not fall under normal business hours.
