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

 

Qualifications:

  • Requirements for certification varies based upon state rules and regulations
  • National certification by RID certification is preferred
  • Possess a good memory since an interpreter will need to remember what has been said in order to accurately translate
  • Assumes responsibility for ongoing continuing education and professional development
  • Bachelor's degree is typical; associate programs also available

 

Certification varies based upon state rules and regulations

 

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).
