Dear Visitor:


Welcome to the website of the Nevada Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (NVRID). NVRID is an affiliate chapter of the national Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID). NVRID follows the mission of RID on a state level.


The mission statement of RID can be accessed for more detailed information at:  http://rid.org/aboutRID/mission/index.cfm


ETHICS: for the basic Code of Professional Conduct general practice interpreters follow, go to RID.org and select the "Ethics" tab. Choices include a listing of the basic tenets, a more in-depth explanation of each tenet, information on the monitoring and complaint process etc.

For specialty interpreting (e.g. Legal or Education, K-12), additional restrictions/requirements/expectations may be found by a search of "ethics" +{the jurisdiction} or "ethics +K-12." For more specific information, speak with the hiring body/corporation/court system.


NVRID is located within RID's Region V (western U.S. including Alaska and Hawaii). Maps and affiliate chapter listings available at www.rid.org


If you need to hire a sign language interpreter, we suggest you familiarize yourself with federal, state and local laws. We have provided links for you on our "It's the Law!" (links) page.
