Sign language Interpreters are some of the most highly trained and specialized professionals working in the interpreting field today. American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters begin with years of advanced schooling to learn Sign Language. In addition to ASL they are also trained in various other systems of sign. Unlike general language interpreting, Sign Language interpreter training programs are specifically designed to integrate the interpreter into the cultural nuances of the Deaf community. Course studies include Deaf culture and history. They learn the specialized requirements necessary for Deaf interpretation. Our interpreters understand that ASL interpreting for the Deaf involves far more than the transferring of information from a spoken language into sign language.
Certification standards for sign interpreters are more rigorous than most spoken language testing requirements, ensuring experience, aptitude, and expertise. Certified interpreters adhere to a strict code of ethics and conduct. In addition, our privacy policies exceed those of most agencies. Language People’s sign language interpreters are some of the best in the business. You can feel confident that with our skilled ASL interpreting professionals you will always have an accurate and respectful exchange of information between you or your representative and the Deaf individual.
