British Sign Language (BSL) / BSL to English interpreting
as you may know, British Sign Language is a visual language with a distinct grammar, vocabulary and structure. our language professionals interpret between BSL and English.
we have an in-house team of qualified communication professionals, plus an extensive network of registered freelance interpreters who can interpret in any domain required.
at appa, whether in-house or freelance, we ensure that all our interpreters:
- are registered with the NRCPD (the National Registers of Communication Professionals for Deaf and Deafblind People) — and therefore subject to the NRCPD’s professional Code of Ethics, Guidelines for Professional Practice and Complaints & Disciplinary procedures
- have up-to-date Criminal Record Bureau (CRB) checks
- have Professional Indemnity insurance
and that’s not all. as well as being experienced and professional, the interpreters we provide are friendly and easy to work with too!
