Teamed Interpreting

Some events may require more than one interpreter.

This is usually determined by the duration of the event, the complexity of the material or the composition of the attendees.

Booking the appropriate number of interpreters for your meeting helps to maintain the accuracy and integrity of the interpretation.

Deaf Interpreters

Deaf Interpreters (DIs) are highly skilled sign language professionals who are experts in their native signed language. They facilitate communication between a Deaf person, a hearing person and an ASL-English/LSQ-French interpreter OR between two signed languages.

DI’s work in a variety of settings, such as medical, legal, employment and mental health services. Consumers that benefit from the use of DI’s include, but are not limited to:

  • Deaf youth

  • Deaf persons with cognitive challenges or a developmental disability

  • Someone using non-standard ASL/LSQ or a unique dialect of ASL/LSQ

  • Non-native signers, eg. newcomers or visitors to Canada, who use a different signed language
