If you need interpretation in another language, you need to arrange your own accredited interpreters (please send an email for further information).

The first European seminar on Sign Language Interpreting on TV & Media will take place in London, UK. The aim of the seminar is to present, share and discuss best practices of sign language interpreters working on TV and media. The seminar welcomes all sign language interpreters & translators (deaf and hearing) working with tv and media, on or behind the screen, as well as all professionals involved in this process: technicians, cameramen, programmers, trainers, and others.

Across Europe there is a diversity of practices, guidelines, programs and tools for sign language interpreting and translating on tv and media. To learn from others, each invited presenter will share their expertise, followed by a guided discussion and exchange of other practices with participants.
