Interpreter and Transliterator Services
On the Job Work Trainings
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, businesses must provide deaf employees with reasonable arrangements for ASL interpreters for relevant events. This could included important meetings, safety training, staff development days, presentations, and other pertinent occasions. Business training interpreters have experience in professional settings and prepare for trainings to accurately convey the subject matter.
New Job Hires / Orientation
By providing an ASL interpreter for interviews of deaf or hard of hearing candidates, you can ensure that all information is accurately conveyed; allowing both the candidate and employer to make an informed decision regarding possible employment. Using an interpreter during new employee orientation can help ensure that all workplace policies, benefits, and on boarding materials are fully communicated.
Conferences typically require the work of teams of ASL interpreters. Much preparation and planning goes into familiarizing themselves with the subject matter and schedule of events. Assignments can include working as a platform interpreter, at breakout sessions, and at social and networking opportunities.
Mental Health Settings
The various complexities when communicating in a mental health setting require an interpreter or a team of interpreters who are skilled at interpreting for someone who is Deaf or Hard of Hearing. Interpreting in mental health settings requires multiple approaches and the ability to detect subtleties in tone to provide proper context. Frequently a Deaf/Hearing team of interpreters are required in this type of setting to make sure and facilitate that effective communication with the patient is achieved.
Whether preparing for surgery, an emergency room visit, or just a routine checkup, it is vital to have a qualified interpret relay accurate information. Using a qualified medical interpreter can increase patient safety and positive outcomes. Even if a family member is available to help, many times it can be too emotionally challenging to play both the role of interpreter and loved one.
ASL interpreters are becoming more and more common at concert venues. Interpreters provide deaf and hard of hearing concertgoers an opportunity to get more engaged in the musical event. By using nonmanual markers like facial expressions and gestures they can help provide the deaf and hard of hearing community a more complete experience.
One common service that we provide in a legal setting is court room interpreting. But we also offer service for depositions, interviews, investigations, attorney-client meetings, legislative hearings, and other situations that require a skilled interpreter with the skill sets and certification as a legal specialist.
Educational interpreters and transliterators play a vital role for children who are deaf or hard of hearing. An interpreter in an educational setting must possess the skills and knowledge required to relay instructional content to children. We’ll help you match the skill set of the interpreter to the needs of the child.
