Professional Interpreting Services

On-Site Interpreting

We provide in-person, face-to-face interpreting services with a personal approach. We understand that your spoken words need to be interpreted with the same meaning and emotion that you wanted to convey.

Remote Interpreting

Conveying what you want to say remotely without the ability to show visual expression is sometimes difficult. We offer remote interpreting services by phone or Skype with the same approach as an in-person, face-to-face meeting.

Document Translation

We offer professional certified document translation for documents such as business contracts, application forms, medical documents, school programs, financial documents, housing forms, and much more.

At International Interpreting Services of Maine, we strive to provide professional interpreting and translation services to all our clients whether it is translating a single document or interpreting for a large corporate event. Quality assurance and accuracy is our number one priority.
