Deaf Relay Interpreters
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.
We ensure that all our Communication Professionals are:

and that’s not all, as well as being experienced and professional, the interpreters we provide are friendly and easy to work with too!

TLS worked closely with my team and across the organisation. They have helped in supporting a colleague and his team to communicate more effectively. At the same time, we have worked together on innovations like using BSL at staff blogs and teaching staff basic BSL signs, ensuring we become more inclusive. They are an excellent communication service who builds effective relationships. They come highly recommended.
