What is a deaf interpreter?

A Deaf interpreter is a Deaf person who is a native user of (ie) American Sign Language-ASL, and a member of the Deaf community. The interpreter can work as a bridge between a Deaf person, an interpreter and the non- signing hearing person. For example, the Deaf person may be from another country, and cannot rely on the interpreter alone, the Deaf interpreter watches the interpreter then modifies the communication in order that the Deaf person has a better understanding of the message.
