Responsibilities

The main job duty of a sign language interpreter is to translate the spoken word into sign language.

Carrying out this main duty requires listening, sign language and communication skills.

An interpreter may also have to do research if he or she is working in a situation involving highly technical information or complex information to gain an understanding of what will be interpreted.

A good memory is also important since an interpreter will need to remember what has been said in order to sign it

Qualifications
Bachelors degree is typical; associate programs also available

Certification varies based upon state rules and district regulations

According to O*NET OnLine, most employers require sign language interpreters to have a degree or vocational training (www.onetonline.org).

Some colleges offer American Sign Language(ASL) programs as a foreign language option.

This allows students to get a degree in English, communications or a related field, while also getting the necessary training in ASL.

Students may also earn an associate or bachelors degree in ASL or sign language interpreting.

State certification may be required by employers as each state has their specific guidelines.

There are several organizations that offer general interpreting certifications, but the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID) offers certification specifically for sign language interpreters.

The RID offers the Oral Transliteration Certificate for those who can demonstrate sign language interpretation skills (www.rid.org).

The RID and the American Translators Association offer mentoring programs for ASL learners.

Hands-on training builds confidence and mastery of skills to help further a career as a sign language interpreter
