Meetings
Conferences
Lectures and talks
Courtroom hearings
Medical appointments
Classrooms
Training sessions

Certified ASL Interpreters

Our American Sign Language interpreters have a minimum of five years of experience and are certified by the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID) and the National Association of the Deaf (NAD). We work closely with our interpreters to ensure a high level of service and a clear line of communication between all parties.

What it takes to be an ASL interpreter

  • A committed individual to not only achieve certification but to also maintain and grow the skills needed
  • Physical stamina, endurance and the ability to emotionally handle an assignment and adhere to confidentiality
  • A great knowledge of the English language and the ability to speak clearly, be audibly heard and to portray the feelings and emotion of the speaker, whether voice or sign interpreting
  • An understanding that interpreting is a complex process that requires linguistic, cognitive and technical skills
