Deaf Interpreters

A Deaf Interpreter is a specialist who provides interpreting, translation, and transliteration services in American Sign Language and other visual and tactual communication forms used by individuals who are Deaf, hard-of-hearing, and Deaf-Blind. Deaf Interpreters work most often in tandem with hearing interpreters.

As a Deaf person, the Deaf Interpreter starts with a distinct set of formative linguistic, cultural, and life experiences that enables nuanced comprehension and interaction in a wide range of visual language and communication forms influenced by region, culture, age, literacy, education, class, and physical, cognitive, and mental health. These experiences coupled with professional training give the Deaf interpreter the ability to effect successful communication across all types of interpreted interactions, both routine and high risk.

Online Scheduling system

Coordinating interpreters is more than a simple email, phone call or a wall calendar. Within the interpreting industry there are numerous software applications specifically designed to assist managing interpreting services.

Partners Interpreting uses a secure, HIPAA compliant cloud-based scheduling and management system called ‘PIP’ Partners Interpreting Portal (PIP).

Our employees also access the scheduler for assignment info and manage of their schedule.

Working in a real-time environment, with automated email notifications, additional administration tools for tracking, budgeting and compliance makes this truly a comprehensive tool for clients and allows Partners Interpreting to manage and coordinate more effectively.
