We have 3 Deaf & 6 hearing staff interpreters, and are supported by 20 community interpreters on an ad-hoc basis, depending on needs and demand. Together, they are able to interpret in Singapore Sign Language (SgSL), Pidgin Sign English (PSE), Signing Exact English (SEE), or a combination of the above.
Our staff interpreters also have extensive interpreting experience in a diverse range of settings – at schools, law courts, corporate workshops, government functions among other places and events. All our interpreters follow a professional code of ethics, which includes appropriate conduct when on official duty and safeguarding clients’ privacy.
How long does it take to be trained in being an interpreter?
To be a sign language interpreter, one must first have a basic knowledge of the sign language. It take approximately 1-2 years to be a sign language interpreter, having attended sign language classes and with exposure to the Deaf community.
