Deaf Interpreters

When you first read the title of this post, you may assume we are discussing hearing interpreters FOR the deaf as opposed to interpreters who ARE deaf themselves. And you would be wrong:)

Believe it or not, there is actually a profession out there for deaf sign language interpreters. Just like their hearing counterparts, they facilitate communication between a deaf and hearing person. How is this possible?

We composed an article recently to better explain this group of Certified Deaf Interpreters. There aren’t very many of them and they’re not very well known by hearing OR deaf people. We’re hoping to change that. How is it possible that a member of the deaf community can work as a sign language interpreter?  Click here to learn more.
