  A VOICE IS YOUR EXPERT RESOURCE FOR   TRILINGUAL INTERPRETING SERVICES  

A trilingual Interpreter is an interpreter who facilitates communication among three different languages. In the deaf and hard of hearing community, this is generally defined as working between American Sign Language (ASL), English, and an additional spoken language. With 23 countries speaking numerous dialects of Spanish, and with a high probability that individuals speaking one or more of these dialects reside in the United States, defining what is meant by “Trilingual Interpreting: American Sign Language/Spanish/English” is complicated.

To be a trilingual interpreter one must have the versatility, adaptability, and cultural understanding of all three languages to convey all essential elements of meaning and to maintain message equivalency. Special training prepares the trilingual interpreter for the unique challenges of this work. Trilingual interpreting requires more knowledge and skills than bilingual interpreting. As such, trilingual interpreters should, and do, receive greater compensation for these abilities.
