Spoken Language Agencies
Spoken language agencies that provide translating and interpreting services for multiple languages have started adding American Sign Language (ASL) to their list of options. Due to the complexity of ASL and the unique culture and community that is formed through this language, it is important to ensure that the language agencies are considering the layered needs in placing a sign language interpreter. The act of placement for a sign language interpreter has more demands then a spoken language and the interpreter must be properly vetted. It is important that the language agency you choose places interpreters considering all aspects of an encounter. For more detailed information about how to choose and agency see About interpreting.
