About

Merritt Interpreting Services, LLC (MIS) sends sign language interpreters into a variety of situations and settings which require communication accessibility. We are a unique, female- owned and managed enterprise primarily serving the North Texas area. The focus of MIS is to provide dependable, quality interpreting services while maintaining strict confidentiality. Every interpreter who works through MIS holds a national and/or state certification.

As a veteran freelance interpreter, Betty J. Merritt (1944–2003) recognized the lack of quality, professional services needed by businesses, doctors, courts, attorneys, police departments, hospitals, the cultural arts, individuals and other organizations. As a result, Ms. Merritt and current director, Stella Ashley, established MIS in 1989. With over twenty years of experience, MIS accommodates the ever-increasing demand for quality interpreting services in the North Central Texas vicinity.

Our office is located in the Uptown area, minutes away from downtown Dallas. Qualified interpreters are available twenty-four hours a day to over eighteen local counties, as well as other areas with advance notice. We welcome all requests regardless of their timeliness. The earlier one can make a request for service the greater the likelihood a qualified interpreter will be available to ensure accessible communication for your clientele. Even so, in case of an emergency or last-minute need an interpreter often can be dispatched upon request. Following provision of services, MIS will issue an invoice to the requesting party. MIS accepts remittance by check or MasterCard/Visa.
