Sign language interpretation

Sign language interpreting at Kroll Languages

Sign language interpreting is an important part of our scope of services. As a natural language, it is used by about 80,000 deaf people and 16 million hard of hearing people in Germany. Gestures, facial expressions, words spoken aloud or silently and the entire body posture form sign language. In addition, there are tactile sign languages, which are used in particular by people with deafblindness and are perceived via the sense of touch.

At Kroll Languages, we can provide you with qualified sign language interpreters to suit your needs. In addition to the sign languages used in German-speaking countries and their various dialects, we can also provide interpreters for other sign languages, such as American Sign Language.

Sign language interpreters for official appointments

Sign language interpreters are used for various occasions. At official appointments, for example with the police, in court or with authorities, you have a legal right to be provided with a sign language interpreter. This ensures accessibility and communication can be carried out in both directions without misunderstandings.

From our large network, we provide you with sign language interpreters who are specialised in this type of appointment and can seamlessly interpret between deaf and hearing people. If you have an official appointment of this kind, you can also apply for the costs to be covered by the relevant social service providers so that you do not incur any additional costs. Therefore, find out what options you have in this area – we will also be happy to assist you with any questions you may have.

Sign language interpreters at various ceremonies

In addition to official appointments, sign language interpreting can of course also be important for business or private occasions. You can use sign language interpreters at congresses, company negotiations or large celebrations such as a wedding or anniversary. Whatever event you are planning or attending, Kroll Languages will find the best partner for you.

For sign language interpreting, our interpreters will accompany you to your appointment or event on site. For appointments that take place online, we are also happy to provide our hub services, where the sign language interpreters are used via a video link and can be seen by everyone. Contact us and we will discuss all the details. We are available by phone, email and contact form.
