As a means to increase the availability of international related services to Pitt schools and departments, the University Center for International Studies (UCIS) has partnered with United Language Group as a Pitt Preferred Provider for interpretation and translation services. This new vendor is available to all schools and departments for use via this portal. This contract exists as a convenience to those needing these services but is not required for use; nor is it intended as a replacement for those who have already partnered with or are using other service providers. Individuals and departments will arrange for their own services; UCIS is the contract holder and will deduct from the respective departmental accounts after making payment to United Language Group.
