Dovetail Communication Group is more than just an interpreting agency. Not only do we specialize in legal interpreting but we can provide interpreting services in any field. DCG focuses on community through communication and connection. We aim to do our part to help the most vulnerable and highest at risk populations. Starting at the local level as it pertains to communication including but not limited to foster care services, intellectual or developmental challenges, youth, social services, employment and education sectors.
We recognize, support and advocate the majority opinion of the Deaf community that in-person, face to face interpreting is the preferred way to facilitate interpreting services. In the case that there is no access or limited access to in-person interpreting or that in-person interpreting is lacking in quality or skill, we can provide interpreting remotely with highly skilled, highly qualified licensed and certified interpreters.
Dovetail Communication Group is headquartered in Austin, Texas and proudly serves all regions in Texas including Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, San Antonio, Houston, El Paso, Corpus Christi and Laredo.
