Interpreting Services

(American Sign Language)

HOW TO BECOME AN INTERPRETER

Interpreting is central and core to all services provided by the Deaf Action Center. This being so because no matter the service provided or the resource acce ssed there must be an appropriate and effective method of communicating. Given the language complexity of the Community – from those with minimal formal sign language skill to those bi-lingual persons proficient in both American Sign Language and English – the Center employs a compliment of individuals possessing, or training to acquire, the knowledge and skills necessary to accommodate the needs of such a client disparity. Interpreters may be requested for situations ranging from community functions e.g., theatre, meetings, lectures, and formal classes to the more individualized appointments e.g., a doctor visit, applying for a loan, or a wedding.

For emergency interpreting assistance, please call the Deaf Action Center office
at 318-425-7781.
