Military Interpreting Services

Military Interpreting Services

The military commissions system was established by the U.S. Congress in 2006 through the Military Commissions Act of 2006 and is governed by military commission rules found in MCO 3500.1D, Employment of Linguists Supporting Military Commission Proceedings. 

The military commission rules dictate a preference for military personnel with a high level of fluency in both languages under consideration, but military linguist personnel shortages require that DoD contracting officers exercise all available options to obtain qualified language speakers when necessary to ensure effective communication between the accused and defense counsel during military commission proceedings (MCO 92312D, Procedures Governing Military Commission Proceedings). 

People with little or no military training are recruited to provide military interpreting services. They typically do not have a military rank, and they are paid the same hourly rate as military linguists. Military interpreters can translate 65 languages either in-person at military commission proceedings for military commissions or from recorded video using video teleconference (VTC) technology. In addition, DoD interpreters can also interpret remotely via VTC from military bases where suspected unlawful combatants are held for military commissions, from Department of Defense overseas locations during pre-trial confinement and post-trial confinement interviews with suspects, and from detainee hearings conducted in accordance with the Military Commissions Act of 2009.

There are approximately 10,000,000 (ten million) people who have hearing loss in the United States, and it’s estimated that about 1,000,000 (one million) of them are considered functionally deaf. As a result, The 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act requires businesses to accommodate these disabilities by making reasonable accommodations for normal day-to-day communication needs such as providing sign language or captioning during remote video meetings so those participating can communicate more easily.

The ability to reserve a certified sign-language interpreter is of paramount importance. Our professional courteous and experienced interpreters are the logical choices in facilitating communications between the hearing enabled, people who are deaf or hard-of hear, they can also help those that have limited speech due to medical conditions like paralysis caused by stroke
or ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis).
