The sign interpreter converts a spoken language into sign language.

How Does Sign Interpreter Work? How Can They Help Your Organization?

Sign language interpreters help hard-of-hearing or deaf individuals understand spoken language by converting it into sign language. Most remote interpreting services offer sign interpretation.

​How Does the Sign Interpreter work?

The sign interpreter works with his hands.

Sign interpreters understand the meaning and intentions in one language or sign language and express those meanings and intentions in the other language. They understand and manage cultural nuances, the setting, and follow professional and ethical standards.

Sign interpreters retain information and manage the flow of the communication, most often in simultaneous interpreting mode. Interpreters are needed in both one-on-one situations as well as group settings. This service is used in a variety of settings, such as the performing arts, schools, hospitals, medical offices, courtrooms, law offices, and government. 

Which Interpretation Modes Use Sign Interpreters?

The sign interpreter uses VRI or in-person interpretation mode.

Sign interpreters need to be able to see their deaf or hard-of-hearing clients. Therefore, in-person or video-remote interpreting (VRI) configuration is necessary to interpret and translate sign language. 

In-person interpreting requires the sign interpreter to come onsite to interpret.

Video-remote interpretation (VRI) uses video and computers or mobile to allow the sign interpreter to work remotely.
