International Sign Interpreting
International Sign Interpreting is a specialised form of sign language interpretation
International Sign Interpreting is a specialised form of sign language interpretation that is used to facilitate communication between people who use different sign languages. International Sign Interpreters have a special skill set and profile, and the World Federation of the Deaf and the World Association of Sign Language Interpreters have established the International Sign Interpreter Accreditation as a joint initiative to meet the increasing demand of International Sign. The pathway to becoming a fully-fledged interpreter in international sign is not easy. One of the conditions is that a sign language interpreter is fluent in one or more national sign Languages.
International Sign Interpreters are used when Deaf individuals from various countries participates in events such as meetings, conferences, and webinars. Some examples of where the services of International Sign interpreters are used are on the level of the United Nations and its various agencies, international meetings of persons with disabilities, World Federation of the Deaf Congress, and other meetings.

Community and INSTITUTION TRAINING
Training Of Deaf Community Members And Other Institutions On The Correct Use Of Sasl Interpreters
SASLINC sees this area of training as a priority. Often untrained SASL interpreters violate the rights of members of the Deaf community. This situation prevails because of a lack of knowledge/information in the Deaf community about eg:
- The role of the SASL interpreter
- Responsibilities of the SASL interpreter
- Code of Ethics for SASL interpreter
- Rights of the Deaf client
- Rights of the SASL interpreter
