WASLI supports the notion of Deaf people being able to train and work as interpreters. The welcome in International Sign is by Juan Carlos Druetta, a Deaf Interpreter from Argentina.
The World Federation of the Deaf have a policy that Deaf Interpreters are part of the team that provide the International Sign service at the WFD Congress.
There are many Deaf people who work as interpreters in a range of settings.
