What We Do

Certified Interpreting Services (CIS) is primarily a provider of sign language interpreting services for Deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals in Southwestern Pennsylvania serving Pittsburgh, Butler and surrounding areas. Other services include: Transliterating, Mentoring, Instruction, and Consultation.


We appreciate the opportunity to provide on site and in-person professional Sign Language Interpreting services as you provide accommodations to deaf consumers in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and the more recent Pennsylvania Act 57. At CIS, you can be certain that you are securing a professional with the proper licensure. Please make every effort to obtain services with advance notice to secure dates and times as needed.

Certificates held: Educational Interpreters Performance Assessment, dual certification from the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf, Inc.


We can coordinate American Sign Language instruction for groups large and small. Both accredited and “just for fun” classes are available for students of all ages. If sign language is one of those things that you have always wanted to learn, consider us as all requirements have been met to teach American Sign Language nationally. Making every effort to coordinate this service in advance will help secure dates and times. Contact us to find out where a class is taking place near you. We look forward to hearing from you!
