About Us

For more than 25 years we have upheld the nation's highest standards in sign language services

President and CEO Michael Rizzolo began Interpretek in 1993 with a vision of bridging the gap between the hearing and the deaf communities. He quickly earned a reputation for delivering outstanding quality services, high ethics, leadership, and dedication to the Deaf and hearing professional communities. 

This respectability led to Interpretek becoming the largest and most recognized referral agency in the greater Rochester, NY region. Our expertise goes beyond understanding American Sign Language, English sign systems, and the nuances between both languages. Our knowledge of Deaf culture ensures that we make appropriate choices when working with our clients. 

In addition to Rochester, Interpretek has continued to grow to serve eight metropolitan areas across the country in Rome New York, Orlando and Jacksonville Florida, Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, Burlington, Vermont, Kansas City, Missouri, and Atlanta, Georgia. We provide premier video remote interpreting services nationwide and produce Online Focus, a vital resource for collegiate interpreter education curricula, statewide mentoring programs and individual professionals seeking continuing education.

With an emphasis on sound customer relationships and the delivery of quality interpreting services, Interpretek remains committed to maintaining a hallmark reputation and earning the trust of our customers nationwide.

Contributing to our community is one of Interpretek's core values. Here are just a few of the ways we do that:
