Welcome to Sign Translate
SignTranslate provides instant help for Deaf people communicating with medical staff.
Our On-Line Interpreting service is a live web-cam link to qualified British Sign Language (BSL) interpreters. The interpreters are provided by our partner interpreting organisations around the country.
