Deaf Interpreter or American Sign Language Interpreter in NYC

In NYC and surrounding cities such as Manhattan Island, The Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, and Staten Islandare becoming extremely responsive to the needs and rights of hard of hearing people, often considered as linguistic minorities during the past thirty years. Consequently native sign languages (NSLs) are legitimate languages and there is a major increase in the demand for Sign Language interpreters and deaf interpreters. Lets discuss the difference between Deaf interpreters and American sign language interpreters in this article.

American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreter in NYC

An American Sign Language interpreter is a professionally qualified person who can interpret what is being said in English and sign it to somebody who can understand sign language but cannot hear. American Sign Language mostly uses hand movements, facial expressions, and body gestures to convey the message to a deaf or hard hearing audience. It has its set of grammar rules and own sentence structure. American Sign Languages grammar is not related to English and is understood throughout the world. To erase the communication gap between the deaf and non-deaf community, American sign language plays a very important role. The professional interpreters of AML-Global provide excellent interpretation services by conveying the purpose, tone, and spirit of messages between Deaf and non-Deaf individuals.

Deaf Interpreter (DI) in NYC

Deaf interpreters are trained to interpret with the use of hand movements and body gestures. A deaf interpreter is a deaf person himself who has a very limited access to American Sign Language(ASL). A deaf interpreter, has an extensive knowledge and understanding, of the Deaf community and/or Deaf culture, which combined with excellent communication skills, can bring added expertise into both routine and uniquely difficult interpreting situations.
