Sign Language Interpreting Services

Qualified Interpreters to Meet Your Sign Language Needs

For over 30 years, companies have relied on Dynamic Language for ASL interpreter services for their deaf and hard-of-hearing employees, patients, and citizensBecause hearing impairments come in many forms and individuals have different learning opportunities, our sign language interpreters are trained in a variety of visual languages. 

American Sign Language

ASL is a rich visual language with its own unique syntax, grammar and sentence structure – completely independent from the spoken word. A diverse range of handshapes, palm gestures, hand movements, facial expressions, and body postures allow culturally deaf audiences to understand the richer complexities of a language they cannot hear.

Pidgin Signed English (PSE)

PSE is a combination of ASL and English, ideal for the hard of hearing or people who develop deafness later in life. In such cases, English has already influenced the linguistic makeup of an individual and PSE can range from being more similar to ASL or English, depending on the needs of each person. It’s also an incredibly quick form of sign language because it drops unnecessary words and word endings – not only making it easier to learn but better suited to environments where interpreters need to keep pace with spoken English.

Signed Exact English/Contact Signing (SEE)

SEE also draws upon signs from ASL, but adds words, prefixes, tenses and other features of English to round off a complete visual representation of the language. SEE can be much easier for hearing parents teach, learn and use, while it offers a more colorful and accurate representation of English.

Deaf/Blind (tactile and close-vision)

Tactile and close-vision interpretation is for individuals with some degree of both vision and hearing impairment. Tactile signing uses ASL signs or fingerspelling on the hand(s) of the deaf/blind person, while close-vision interpreting involves signing at a distance suitable for partially sighted individuals.
