For over 30 years, companies have relied on Dynamic Language for Sign Language interpreting such as American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter services for their deaf and hard-of-hearing employees, patients, and citizens. Because hearing impairments come in many forms and individuals have different learning opportunities, our sign language interpreters are trained in a variety of visual languages. Contact us if you would like more information on Sign Language interpreting or would like to request a quote.
ASL is a rich visual language with its own unique syntax, grammar, and sentence structure. It is 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.
PSE is a combination of ASL and English. It is 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. 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. This not only makes it easier to learn but better suited to environments where interpreters need to keep pace with spoken English.
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. It offers a more colorful and accurate representation of English.
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.
