INTERPRETING SERVICE

Deaf Hub’s British Sign Language interpreting service is interpreter led and we always enjoy a challenge! We provide a national service and have covered some of the hardest to reach areas in the UK. We enjoy the challenge of getting the communication support you need, to the place you need it.

We respect the interpreting community by promoting national fees standards and terms and conditions. We believe that by upholding these values we are investing in the continual betterment of the profession. This will in turn provide interpreters and communication professionals for the Deaf community that are of higher quality and more varied in their experience.

We listen to our Deaf consumers, when preferences are suggested for communication professionals that match their needs and always look to them to aid us in getting the best possible service for them, no matter the circumstance. We can provide Access to Work interpreting for an inclusive fee and are happy to send quotes though for this work.

When we are contacted for communication support requests, we are able to work with you to advise on the best support for the client, using our expertise and experience. We aim to be cost effective, yet work with you to achieve the best possible outcomes for all involved.

Our pricing is clear and we are a no obligation service until our costs have been approved by you. We use communication support professionals that are registered with NRCPD, RBSLI, SASLI and AVSTTR.

We work within the following domains:

Education
Access to Work
Media
Non-Custodial Police Work
Community
Legal and Solicitor Services
Events
Health

We can provide the following types of professionals;

BSL

British Sign Language Interpreters

BSL is a recognised language with it’s own structure and grammar that is different to English. BSL interpreters use facial expressions, lip patterns, hand shapes and body movements combined to deliver an interpretation of the message from English to BSL. They also interpret BSL into English to provide ‘voice over’ for what a Sign Language user is saying.

 

SSE

Sign Supported English interpreters

SSE is when interpreters sign the exact words that are being spoken in the English word order. SSE is not a recognised language and interpreters do not have specialised qualifications in it, they often adapt their singing style to accommodate it. Please mention if you require this service as some interpreters are more experienced using SSE than others.

 

STTR

Speech To Text Reporters service

STTRs type what is being said word-for-word simultaneously to the speech to allow people to read what is being said live. They also provide environmental information, such as laughter or alarms, to allow Deaf and hard of hearing people to understand what is happening in the room. This can be done remotely or in person using a big screen or a laptop sized screen depending on the event.

LS

Lipspeakers

Lipspeakers repeat what a speaker is saying clearly without using their voice. This allows someone to lip read them and is useful if they are unfamiliar with BSL or SSE but are unable to lip read someone that is new to them that may not annunciate clearly. They may also use facial expressions to reflect the speakers intent and many can provide Sign Language support along with their skills lipspeaking.
