I accept the Terms and Conditions for working with Lanie Sign Language Services and understand that submission of this form shall serve as the contract.

General Rates

  • General Rates cover non-specialized interpreting situations.

  • $150.00 Initial Fee (covers up to two hours of interpreting or consulting services)
    • $65.00 per hour thereafter

  • Rates for other interpreters provided by Lanie Sign Language Services will be determined on an individual basis.  Assignments over two hours long generally require a second interpreter. In the event that I cannot personally cover a request, or that I need a co-interpreter, I can personally arrange for another interpreter or provide you with referrals.

Legal Rates

  • Legal Rates cover jobs of a legal nature, such as meetings between attorney and client, mediations, depositions, and courtroom interpreting services. This rate is based on the additional training and legal experiences required in this specialized setting.

  • $150.00 Initial Fee (covers up to two hours of interpreting or consulting services)
    • $75.00 per hour thereafter

  • Rates for other interpreters provided by Lanie Sign Language Services will be determined on an individual basis.  Assignments over two hours long generally require a second interpreter. In the event that I cannot personally cover a request, or that I need a co-interpreter, I can personally arrange for another interpreter or provide you with referrals.

Exceptions and Additional Fees

Differential rates for platform, legal, deaf-blind (tactile), or otherwise more demanding assignments will be negotiated at the time a request is made. Concerts, musicals and plays will be billed at a Flat Rate, with consideration given to the type of show and amount of lead time given.

Cancellations and No-Shows

Jobs cancelled by 5pm 3 business days prior to the assignment will not be billed.

Assignments extending more than two days in length, which are cancelled by 5pm 3 business days prior to the assignment start date, will only be charged for two days.

No-Shows are billed without exception.

Travel outside of the Metro DC area

Assignments requiring more than 1.5 hours of driving one way may be billed at a half day rate or day rate.  Expenses for travel and lodging (hotel, rental car, airfare, etc) will be negotiated on a case by case basis and may be covered by the requesting company or reimbursed at cost.

Reimbursable Charges

I do not charge for mileage, parking, tolls, trains, or metro. However, if I contract other interpreters for your assignment these charges may apply and will be negotiated at the time of contract.

Inclement Weather Policy

I have taken effort to ensure that I am prepared to handle all manner of inclement weather. I will cancel without cost only when a weather emergency has been officially declared by the local authorities. Cancellations made by a client due to inclement weather will be billed unless otherwise negotiated.

Payment Terms

Net 30 days from the invoice date. Invoices not paid within 30 days will be assessed an additional 5%, on day 31, and an additional 5% for each 15 day period thereafter that payment is late. Lanie Sign Language Services also accepts payment via Mastercard and VISA.
