Deaf Interpreters for Funerals in Bala Cynwyd

Many funerals in the deaf community make use of sign language interpreters, especially if the funeral is quite large. Usually, an interpreter will sit facing the mourners and sign what the officiant or speaker is saying. This is especially prominent for funerals that honor people who knew many deaf people such as teachers of the deaf. The interpreter may be a bilingual, hearing member of the community or may be hired to come in and translate for the funeral. Usually, everything from the family’s remarks to the homily to the hymns can be translated using sign language for those assembled. It is usually best if the person translating into sign language to be right-handed, as left-handed sign language is sometimes confusing and harder to read at a distance.
