ASL (American Sign Language) Translation
What is ASL Translation?
Not to be confused with Interpreting, ASL Translation requires something in written form. Interpreting on the other hand never involves anything written.
- Quick turnaround for the translation of emails.
- Translation of documents, employee handbooks, and manuals.
- Translation of websites.

What do we do?
We offer ASL Translation. We take anything written and turn it into a beautiful finished ASL video translation. We can also take an ASL video and turn it into written English.
Video Remote Interpreting
Dr. Ware uses its state-of-the-art VRI (Video Remote Interpreting) technology to provide professional and confidential sign language interpreting remotely. VRI is particularly beneficial in an emergency where an interpreter cannot be there in person.
Dr. Ware’s system has a significant advantage because there is no special software or tools to purchase. Instead, we have invested in buying all necessary software and a dedicated media server, eliminating clients’ added expenses.
Cultural mediation is an integral part of any interpreting assignment. Not only does ASL present a language difference, but a cultural difference. We use cultural mediation to resolve issues and facilitate conversations between deaf staff members and hearing staff members. Our consulting includes awareness presentations to foster effective communication in the work environment to make sure everyone feels valued and included.
