Why Spanish Medical Translation and Interpretation Matters

In the United States, about 11,000,000 individuals consider themselves Deaf or have serious difficulty hearing.

About 2 to 3 out of every 1000 children in the United States are born with a detectable form of hearing loss in one or both ears.

Today, there are more than 300 different sign languages in the world and these languages are used by 72 million Deaf or Hard of hearing people.

Frequently asked questions

The terms translator and interpreter are often used interchangeably. Translators focus on document translation and process written content from one language to another. Interpreters facilitate spoken or signed communication between people who don’t speak the same language.

It’s important to understand that there is no such thing as an ASL translator since ASL cannot be written. So, when people say that they need an ASL translator, what they mean is that they need an ASL interpreter.
