AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE

As of January 2014, Language Resources has expanded its interpreting services to include American Sign Language.

All of the interpreters for ASL are certified and members of the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf.   Why is that important to you?

From the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf:   

     Interpreting requires specialized expertise. While proficiency in English and in sign language is necessary, language skills alone are not sufficient for an individual to work as a professional interpreter. Becoming an interpreter:

 

  • Is a complex process that requires a high degree of linguistic, cognitive and technical skills;
  • Takes a committed individual to not only achieve certification but to also maintain and grow the skills needed; 
  • Requires physical stamina, endurance and the ability to emotionally handle an assignment and adhere to confidentiality; 
  • Necessitates a great knowledge of the English language and the ability to speak clearly, be audibly heard and to portray the feelings and emotion of the speaker, whether they are voice or sign interpreting.

 

Should you have the need for an American Sign Language interpreter, please give us a call at our regular office phone (336-279-1199) and we will do our best to fulfill your request.
