The World Association of Sign Language Interpreters (WASLI) advances the interpreting profession worldwide. For example, it encourages establishing national associations of sign interpreters where they don’t exist. It also is a support network for existing national associations. Meanwhile, they support both hearing and deaf sign language interpreters. They also support both interpreters for sighted deaf people and also for deafblind people.

As other examples of WASLI activities, they share information on interpreting issues. They also promote high quality training for sign interpreters. And they also liaise with spoken language interpreter organizations on common interests.

The WASLI website is partly accessible for people using screen reading software. For example, some images use alternative text to identify them. But other images on the World Association of Sign Language Interpreters do not. 

Also learn some tips for finding deaf organizations around the world. Or else, explore some of our other links to organizations of and for deaf people.
