PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwire - March 3, 2011) - Deaf-Talk, Inc. dba DT Interpreting (PINKSHEETS: MGQG), (DTI) the industry leader in on-demand video sign language interpreting, announced today that it recently signed seven (7) new contracts with police departments in the Pittsburgh area. The contracts call for DTI to provide around the clock over-the-phone interpreting and written language translation services as needed and mark the Company's entry into a new market of growing interpreting service needs. 

The police departments to be served are Mt. Lebanon, Upper St. Clair, Dormont, Carnegie, Castle Shannon, South Fayette Township and Moon Township.

Jeffrey Harbin, Chief of Police at the Carnegie Police Department, stated, "The Carnegie Police Department believes the on-demand interpreting services of DT Interpreting will greatly aid our abilities to better serve the needs of our growing non-English speaking community. With these 24/7 services, our officers will much more quickly be able to understand a situation and deliver assistance to those non-English speaking individuals involved."

"There are a wide variety of scenarios where quick and accurate services by certified interpreters are of great importance. DTI is equipped to service all and is very pleased to now be at the ready to assist the law enforcement officers of these Pittsburgh departments," stated David Stauffer, DT Interpreting president. "For example, there was a recent incident in Pittsburgh involving a 2-year old child and his parents, none of whom spoke English. Had our service been in place at the time, the police could have received much needed on-site interpreting services in just a few seconds. They will now be able to do so," concluded Stauffer.
