What is ASL?
ASL is short for American Sign Language, a language that communicates through the use of hand signs accompanied by facial expressions, body movement, and overall body language. ASL is the primary language of deaf communities in the United States, the English-speaking regions of Canada, and some parts of Mexico. Just like many spoken languages, ASL contains various regional variations throughout the U.S. and Canada.

The Difference between ASL and Signed English
Despite the general misconceptions, ASL and Signed English are not the same language. Signed English tends to closely reflect English language grammar, while ASL does not. This main difference is apparent in the word order and sentence structure of the two languages. A typical ASL sentence would be grammatically incorrect if translated into English. These differences are well understood by our interpreters. Having a strong command of both ASL and English ensures a quality interpretation that you can count on.
