Hiring an interpreter

Your first time working with an interpreter should be easy and painless. As a hearing consumer a few things to keep in mind are:

 

  • Speak directly to the Deaf consumer (avoid saying “tell them…”)
  • Provide your interpreter with a copy of printed materials if available.
  • Interpreters need breaks about every 20 minutes (Try holding your arms out for two hours straight)
  • Interpreters use “lag time” to process and gain an understanding of the entire message before they begin signing.
