Deaf Interpreter or American Sign Language Interpreter in San Diego

Deaf Interpreter or American Sign Language Interpreter in San Diego

During the past thirty years’ cities in San Diego and surrounding areas like Chula Vista, Sorrento Valley, Oceanside, Carlsbad, Escondido and others have become progressively sensitive to the social needs and privileges of phonetic minorities, bringing about acknowledgment that local native sign languages (NSLs) are legitimate dialects. In this article, we will talk about the distinction between American Sign Language Interpreters and Deaf Interpreters.

American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreters in San Diego

An American Sign Language interpreter is a person prepared to interpret English signing. At the end of the day, they are a trained proficient individual who interprets what is being said and signs it for some individual who cannot hear, yet comprehends sign based communication.

For communication, the Deaf/Hard of Hearing within their own communities, use American Sign Language which is a visual language with its own grammar and syntax. By the use of hands, arms, and body language, they communicate with those who are deaf or hard of hearing. American Sign Languages grammar is not English related and is understood all over the world. Many people believe that ASL is only used by Deaf people, but many hard of hearing people also use sign language to supplement what they can hear among friends or family. Obviously, an interpreter can speak the words which convey the meaning of whatever the signing person signs so hearing people can “hear” what is signed.

Deaf Interpreter (DI) in San Diego

A Deaf Interpreter is a specialist who provides interpreting, translation, and transliteration services in American Sign Language and other visual and tactile communication forms used by individuals who are Deaf, hard-of-hearing, and Deaf-Blind. A deaf interpreter should be trained in the role and ethics of an interpreter, and may also have specialized training and/or experience giving them the ability to effect successful communication across all types of interpreted interactions, both routine and extraneous.
