ASL Interpreting Services"Truly Communicate with Members of the Deaf Community"
ASL Interpreting Services
American Sign Language is the third most “spoken” language in the US, and ASL interpreting is required in many settings. Here is an excerpt from the American with Disabilities Act (the ADA):
“In order to provide equal access, a public accommodation is required to make available appropriate auxiliary aids and services where necessary to ensure effective communication.”
One of the greatest hindrances to complete and correct communication with the Deaf Community is the finger speller or non-professional signer. Often the family member of a deaf person, they may not have the vocabulary to understand or interpret into American Sign Language! Though well-intentioned, an encounter moderated by a finger speller will be less than fluent, at best, and important information could be missed. The ASL interpreters at Capital Linguists are carefully screened for fluency and academic preparation to assist varieties of deaf communication ability. Some specialize in medical interpreting and others in media communications, etc. Deaf people are gaining access to all aspects of American life, so they lobby, and litigate, vigorously for inclusion. All this is to say that the better the interpreter, the better the overall communication with the deaf community. The interpreters and translators of Capital Linguists will bring you the best service, value, and results for all ASL to English and English to ASL needs. Expert simultaneous interpretation means communication will be so quick and fluent, you’ll feel just as if the interpreter was not there! Our translators render into ASL, or from ASL to English superbly, and you can choose specialists in the arts or the hard sciences.
