Please note: if you are transporting clients to a medical or mental health appointment the medical office is required to provide interpretation.

What if the toll-free interpretation line isn’t working?

Language Link understands that some telephone providers do not allow customers to access toll free lines.  Because we want to ensure our customers have access to interpretation services, we assign backup local numbers for customers that may fall into this category.  If you are unable to access the toll-free interpretation line assigned to your account, you may access interpretation services by dialing the backup number 360-314-0728. Please note, that you may incur long-distance charges from your telephone provider when accessing the backup local number.
