Business Spotlight: Be Moore Interpreting

Meet Shirley X. Moore and Zoila Bernal of Be Moore Interpreting!

Shirley and Zoila began Be Moore with $25 a month! They both had worked as freelance interpreters for many companies and in the non-profit sector. They had experienced the challenges of working with interpreters and working for interpreting firms. They wanted to launch a firm that focused on the client experience and ensured a full interpretation!

Be Moore interpreters are trained to provide a contextual interpretation which includes emotion, influx and body language so that clients are “fully” heard, every time. Whether the interpretation is for a legal, medical or personal appointment, their team of professional foreign language providers make sure every person becomes a thriving member of the world around them.

Their favorite part about their job is that they get to make a difference every day! “Our work is empowering, connecting and supporting our community on a daily basis. There's no better feeling than that,” Shirley and Zoila told us.

Be Moore Interpreting received a recent grant from Washington Trust, in partnership with Lawyers for Civil Rights and Tufts Health Plan. The $1,000 grant helped them purchase PPE for their 100 subcontractors who would've traditionally had to purchase their own equipment for in-person assignments.
