BSL Customer Review
“As a Deaf professional regularly working in legal environments, it can often be difficult obtaining the services of a suitably experienced BSL interpreter at short notice.
I contacted Involve Interpreter BSL as I had failed to find a face to face interpreter at short notice. I wasn’t sure how it would work out but it was actually a fantastic experience. Myself and my service user are both Deaf and use BSL and were able to hold a lengthy discussion with a solicitor and social worker with ease using an iPad. The interpreter was fully qualified and understood legal terminology making communication much smoother for everyone.
We could disconnect from the video interpreter during court sessions and resume again after. I was only charged for the time we used so did waste any resources by paying a face to face interpreter who was not needed for the entire duration – I can’t recommend this service highly enough!” – Involve Interpreter BSL Customer
