Interpreting

What is Interpreting?

The process of changing a message from one language to another, conveying all essential elements of meaning and maintaining dynamic equivalence.

Deaf Interpreter

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

Interpreter Coordinator

Do you have a conference, event, production, or venue coming up that needs ASL Interpreters? 

As an Interpreter Coordinator, I assist with the following:

  • Communicate and coordinate with the event/project coordinator

  • Assemble interpreters, coordinate logistics, and scheduling

  • Assess commmunication modalities and language uses

  • Provide advice based on years of expertise and experience
