Description of Services

Sign Language Interpreters, Inc. [SLI] provides qualified interpreters for all types of sign language interpreting.  The languages used in these services include American Sign Language [ASL], Puerto Rico Sign Language [PRSL], Spanish voicing and English voicing.  The languages used for this process of communication are usually subject to the preferences of the consumers (both deaf and hearing).

The interpreter from SLI strictly adheres to the Interpreter’s Code of Ethics. This code has been established and adopted by the non-profit organization Puerto Rico Registry Interpreters for the Deaf, Inc. [PRRID] which is a chapter of the national non-profit organization, Registry Interpreters for the Deaf 

Service Requests

  • When SLI receives the information, SLI will send a written confirmation [fax, e-mail or letter] for the service indicating number of interpreters being assigned and confirming availability.  If a service request is confirmed within 72 business hours of the scheduled service, a written or a verbal confirmation (including messages left on voice mail or an answering machine) will be deemed binding and sufficient.
  • In accordance with standard interpreter practices, interpreting services that have a duration of more than two hours usually require two interpreters.  This ensures that information is accurately transmitted and minimizes interpreter error from fatigue.
  • In the case that a service is requested within 48 business hours, the service will be considered confirmed at the moment of request.
  • A request for service is may be a written request such as a fax, e-mail or letter as well as a verbal request such as a personal telephone conversation and messages left on voice mail.
