Ultimate Guide to the
Field of Sign Language Interpreting
THE PROFESSIONAL SIGN LANGUAGE INTERPRETER'S HANDBOOK, authored by Linda Humphreys, is a comprehensive, invaluable, and wonderful resource for both the deaf and interpreting communities. Everyone, including interpreters and those who wish to join the interpreting profession, service agencies, professionals working with deaf and hard of hearing individuals, and consumers who work with sign language interpreters, will want to have this HANDBOOK in their libraries.

Finally, it’s here! THE PROFESSIONAL SIGN LANGUAGE INTERPRETER'S HANDBOOK
is the “missing link” between interpreter training programs
(ITPs) and the real world of sign language interpreting. In these
pages, Linda Humphreys bridges "the gap" between academic theories
and the day-to-day reality of working as a professional interpreter.
