We offer BSL/English Interpreting Services in a wide variety of domains.
I am a Registered Qualified Interpreter with the National Register of Communication Professionals with Deaf and Deaf Blind People (NRCPD) and a Full Member of Association of Sign Language Interpreters (ASLI). I qualified in 2000 and have a wealth of experience in many interpreting settings, specialising in Theatre and Large Scale Events.
Derby has the largest Deaf community outside of London – you can make events accessible by employing experienced Registered Qualified BSL/English Interpreters.
BSL/English Interpreters work between two languages – from BSL to English and English to BSL. BSL is not a signed version of English, it is a language in its own right.
