Martin Vasquez


Norma Vasquez


Being awarded another BEI certificate makes them BEI multiple certificate holders. Martin & Norma have consistently demonstrated their commitment to the Deaf community and to this profession’s goals and objectives. Since they have joined the SLS team they have performed at a high level in many aspects of the interpreting industry and tackled special projects. They have proven to be an exceptional addition to our team!

Please join me in congratulating Martin & Norma Vasquez on their newest achievement.

SLS COVID-19 Response:

We here at SLS highly value communication access. The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly affected all of our lives. We are responding to these changes by maximizing safety while still prioritizing effective communication. We are happy to announce that SLS has adopted Virtual Video Interpreting (VVI) services. VVI services are available anywhere there is internet access, and in any setting where an interpreter is needed, such as school, court, hospital, doctor’s office, etc.

To all in our communities, we wish you to stay at home whenever possible, stay healthy, and stay safe! While we are still offering in-person interpreters as a last resort at this time, we want to partner with you in adhering to social distancing, and other suggested safe work practices. In this way we can all limit the risk to ourselves, to those in our households, and to those we work with. It is our sincere hope that we can successfully navigate this crisis together.

Let us provide you with interpreters for your SAFE appointments! Please click the tab and request further information on our VVI services.
