5 star ratings

As the Supervisor in Member services with Health Choice AZ. I would like to say that A Foreign Language Service had been one of our good vendors for many years. The times that we had requested an interpreter for a member’s appointment, they were on time and communicated professionally with our members and providers. I recommend A Foreign Language Services for your language interpreting needs.

This is a common question! Both interpreters and translators work with languages.  The difference lies  in how they work – the translator interprets the written word whereas the interpreter translates orally.

Yes, we really do! Please see our list of languages for the more common ones that we get request for and remember, if you have a rare or emerging language that is not on the list, please give us a call or contact us anyway.

It is in the best interest of the client to notify us as soon as possible so we can provide the best translator or interpreter uniquely suited to you.

This depends upon the length of the document(s) and the targeted language.

We have a national network of certified, professional interpreters and translators who can work on-location across the United States, including anywhere in the Phoenix Valley and the state of Arizona.
