Why are two interpreters required for my event?

There are a multitude of reasons that two interpreters may be needed in order to provide services for an event. The most commonly cited explanation is that for assignments two hours or longer, two interpreters are needed because one must relieve the other at regular intervals in order to avoid fatigue and physical strain. While this is certainly accurate, it is not the only situation in which two interpreters are needed.

Situations with a plethora of participants who may need services simultaneously are also a perfect example of the necessity for two (or more interpreters). Two monolingual consumers attending a lecture may want to separate to interact with other attendees or presenters either before, after, or during the event. In this instance, one interpreter would not be sufficient to provide those services.

High risk or otherwise stressful scenarios also necessitate two interpreters, not only for the purposes of mitigating fatigue but also to monitor the quality of the interpreting product. When someones life, liberty, or well being are at stake, two (or more) interpreters are always warranted.

Why do I need an interpreter; dont deaf people read lips?

Lipreading, or as it is now referred to, "speechreading", is a technique employed by many Deaf or hard of hearing people when working with people speaking to them. While for some people in one on one interactions speechreading can be an extremely effective tool, there are a variety of factors that can quickly reduce its accuracy.

First, speechreading requires a good view of the speakers face; when lighting conditions are not ideal or there are multiple parties involved in the conversation, it can be difficult to determine who is speaking when, much less what they are saying. Even in ideal situations, speechreading English is fraught with difficulty. Voiced and unvoiced pairs are indistinguishable based on sight alone, as the only difference is the addition of voice. For example, the sounds of P as in "pat" and B as in "bat" look the same on the mouth.

While some people do employ speechreading regularly as a communication tool, often this needs to be supplemented with interpretation or other communication accommodations.


Should I say Deaf, hard of hearing, or hearing impaired?

While there are some general rules about which term to use, it is best to ask the person with the hearing loss what their preference would be. That being said, Deaf is often used to refer to people who communicate primarily in American Sign Language, and consider themselves part of the Deaf community. Hard of hearing refers to those who consider themselves part of the Deaf community, but have enough residual hearing or speech skills that they can often communicate directly with hearing people. Hearing impaired is dmost often used to refer to those who lost their hearing later in life, and have retained most their speech skills and/or hearing. This term is not often used to refer to those who feel a connection to ASL or the Deaf community.
