Sign Language Interpreter Responsibilities

A sign language interpreter’s main job is to translate spoken word into American Sign Language. To do so, it is important that a sign language interpreter understands the subject matter of what is being discussed. This ensures a more accurate translation. In the school setting, an interpreter typically works one-on-one with a student and might even use a form of technology to provide interpretation remotely.

How to Become a Sign Language Interpreter

Most Sign Language Interpreters are required to have some form of vocational training or degrees. Some colleges offer sign language programs specifically. Certification requirements typically vary by the employer and are not always required. However, certifications are offered by the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID) and American Translators Association.

Sign Language Interpreter Salary & Job Outlook

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the occupation as a whole is expected to see an 18% growth between 2016 and 2026, which is muster faster than average. The salary you receive will depend on the setting and state you work in. Typically school districts with a larger caseload will pay more, however, there are exceptions to this. Your level of certification can also play a factor in your wage.
