RID’s digital publication dedicated to the interpreting profession with a readership of more than 14,000, VIEWS is distributed quarterly to our members inbox. With member spotlights, announcements from the board, and engaging stories about issues impacting the interpreting community.

RID sends a monthly newsletter with important announcements and updates from HQ and the Board of Directors.

You may nominate an individual you feel is praiseworthy through our Membership Spotlight Form HERE.

If you have a survey or other research related to Sign Language Interpreting, we would love to share it on our social media and post it in our Research Corner. We hope that RID can facilitate easy access for our members to the wonderful research happenings in our community. Please let us know about your research projects by filling out our Research Corner Submission Form HERE.

RID Publications is a component of RID and focuses on publishing professional literature and association-related information. The main difference between RID Press and RID Publications is that RID Press concentrates on producing text books and other educational/instructional material. For example, RID Publications produces the RID newsletter, VIEWS, The Journal of Interpretation and various RID brochures, like the Standard Practice Papers. RID Press published the books you will find in the RID catalog of publications.

RID’s catalog of publications, books, and reference materials offers a wide variety of titles relevant to the interpreting profession written by authors who have established distinguished careers and reputations as some of the most respected interpreters in their field.
