Rela’s History

Rela was founded with the goal in mind of not only meeting high demand but also improving the quality of interpretation.

The need for connecting and integrating Limited English Proficient (LEP) individuals with their communities has increased dramatically in recent years. Consequently, the need to access qualified interpreters who can facilitate clear communication has become crucial.

Isbelia Burnham, the founder of Rela, has been interpreting, coordinating, and building programs for fluid, seamless interpreting in the healthcare industry for over 25 years. Her unique approach has brought sophistication to the growing need for interpretation services.

Our Interpreters

Rela has access to a deep pool of Interpreters who speak a wide variety of languages.

These interpreters are not only fully proficient in their languages, but they also engage in ongoing training and development to maintain and enhance their skills and professionalism.
