The Interpreting Stakeholder Group

The Interpreting Stakeholder Group (ISG) is made up of representatives from a wide variety of industries including both freelance and staff interpreters, healthcare organizations, interpretation agencies, and insurance companies. Our mission is to improve the delivery of spoken language interpreter services in Minnesota, and to promote the professionalization of the interpreting industry as a whole.

Update: ISG Dissolution

ISG is currently in the process of legally dissolving as a MN non-profit. This process is expected to be completed by September 2021.

The Interpreting Stakeholder Group (ISG) was incorporated in MN as a non-profit organization in March 2011. Its mission was to improve the delivery of spoken language interpreter services in MN. Its organizational structure uniquely brought together representatives from various sectors of the interpreting industry.

Over the years, ISG

    • Provided a forum for stimulating cross-sector dialogue, information exchange, and problem solving.
    • Organized trainings for interpreters, and collaborated with professional associations to expand awareness of best practices when working with interpreters.
    • Spearheaded the legislative effort to create statewide training, competency, and reimbursement standards for spoken language medical interpreters.
    • Reached out to immigrant communities in the Twin Cities to provide information on accessing interpreter services and working with interpreters.

After meeting its financial obligations, ISG will donate its remaining funds to the following programs:

    • Scholarship fund for the TRIN program at Century College in White Bear Lake, MN
    • Interpreter Training Program at the Karen Organization of MN in Roseville, MN

The Board of the Interpreting Stakeholder Group thanks current and past ISG members for their involvement, and organization and government stakeholders for their support. We greatly regret the need to dissolve ISG. We wish you peace and hope.
