BSL interpreting

In the UK, British Sign Language (BSL) is officially recognised as the second most widely used language after English. According to the charity Action on Hearing Loss, there are already more than 10 million hearing-impaired individuals – and this figure is set to grow to one in five by 2035.

For organisations required to make the ‘reasonable adjustments’ necessary to allow access to services, the demand for BSL-trained interpreters is high.

Our interpreters

Qualified professionals

Our BSL interpreters are highly skilled and qualified professionals, directly recruited from the NRCPD database (the national register of communications professionals working with the deaf/deafblind).

We provide BSL interpreters on a national scale and have been doing so across the NHS and local government. Our strong reputation amongst the BSL interpreting community, and our clients, comes from providing only the highest quality and most experienced interpreters.
