Deaf Relay Interpreters

NRCPD Registered

When a Deaf client has specific or complex language needs they will need a Deaf Relay Interpreter. The client requiring a Deaf Relay Interpreter may have learning disabilities, mental health problems or use rare signs or what is described as “Grassroots Deaf”.

A Deaf Relay Interpreter will ensure that the client fully understands the dialogue being communicated.

Many “Grassroots Deaf” people have a complex BSL structure mixed in with issues of understanding even basic concepts.

Deaf relay interpreters are Language intermediaries for Deaf people who are not fluent in BSL they provide specialised interpreting services for people who do not use BSL as their primary means of communication. They work alongside BSL interpreters with users who are Deaf but not fluent in BSL.

They adapt what the hearing interpreter is signing into a native variation of BSL for the client together with the client’s response for the interpreter.

TLS can provide fully trained, experienced and personable Deaf Relay interpreters for clients with a range of specialised needs.
