Code of Conduct

All interpreters follow a strict code of conduct and have a high standard of professional etiquette. As interpreting often involves private or personal matters, confidentiality is a must.

Accurate Translation
The determination to give a Deaf person an adequate voice and not colour the translation. Interpreters will always interpret to the best of their abilities for both parties.

Current Skills
Interpreters must constantly update and test their skills in a range of environments, keeping abreast of new phrases, signs and common language usage.

Act as an aid to communications
Interpreters should act only as a channel for communications flow and remain neutral in all situations.
