What is Interpreting?
The process of changing a message from one language to another, conveying all essential elements of meaning and maintaining dynamic equivalence.
As a Deaf Interpreter, I provide interpreting, translation, and transliteration services in American Sign Language, ProTactile, and other visual/tactual communication forms used by individuals who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and DeafBlind. Oftentimes, I work together with a Hearing Interpreter to facilitate communication between a Deaf person and a hearing person.
I have done interpreting work in various settings: medical appointments, meetings, press conferences, and many more. All interpreting related-work is done in strict confidence in adherence to the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf Code of Professional Conduct.
Do you have a conference, event, production, or venue coming up that needs ASL Interpreters?

Communicate and coordinate with the event/project coordinator
