British Sign Language interpreting

BSL is the only language that many people can use to communicate. If you are hearing impaired, we know how important it is for you to reach services that you would otherwise be unable to access.

About 125,000 adults and 20,000 children in the UK who are deaf or have restricted hearing abilities use British Sign Language (BSL).

Our list of professional interpreters includes a large number of BSL-fluent Interpreters. Their work extends to cover all areas of interpretation for public services, legal contexts and healthcare.

Our BSL interpreters are rigorously vetted to the same high standards as our vocal interpreters. All of them agree to abide by our code of ethics and are reliable, professional and culturally sensitive. We also conduct enhanced Criminal Record Bureau checks for all interpreters as well as employing robust confidentiality processes.

Expertise and understanding

Most of our BSL interpreters have trained for many years to reach a high level of expertise. Working at full capacity, they can sign thousands of words an hour, allowing correspondents to communicate easily and without misunderstanding. This service can be a lifeline for hearing impaired people.

Our BSL interpreters are used in a wide range of communications activities, from small business meetings and committees to large-scale conferences. For smaller meetings a single interpreter will suffice; but we can also provide pairs of interpreters for larger events and conferences.

As with all the interpreting and translation we provide, we will work closely with you to make sure that our service matches your requirements exactly, whether you need BSL interpretation on a one-to-one basis or at a major conference or event.
