Interpreting Information

Interpreters working in Michigan are required by law to be certified, and in certain instances they are also required to hold endorsements for specialized types of interpreting.

Whether you are an interpreter who wants to work in Michigan, you have been asked to provide an interpreter, or you want to know more about interpreting and the rights of Deaf, DeafBlind, or Hard of Hearing persons to request interpreters, The Michigan Department of Civil Rights – Division on Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing has a website with that information. It is available here.
