Sign Language Australia Interpreting Services

Sign Language Australia Interpreting is Australia’s newest Auslan/English interpreting service. We are 100% Deaf-led and provide a competitively-priced Auslan/English interpreting service based in Adelaide, South Australia.

As we are a social enterprise, a percentage of profits is invested back into the on-going development of SLA Interpreting/translating services. We employ a wide range of qualified and experienced interpreters and translators

Mission Statement

 These are the 3 service delivery aims driving SLA Interpreting/Translating forward

Aim 1

To provide a sign language interpreting/translating service that best meets the needs of clients firstly and fore-mostly

Aim 2

To provide sign language interpreters and translators with professional development services of the highest possible quality

Aim 3

To provide training for customers, regarding how to book and work with an interpreter or a translator

Exploring creative depths

We aim to be an innovative provider of Auslan/English interpreting services. We focus on a holistic approach to quality management. We develop relationships between Auslan/English interpreters, translators, customers, and our booking services coordinator.

From the Beginning

A need for an independent Deaf-owned and operated and interpreting/translating service provider was identified after some interpreters, some translators and SA Deaf Community members expressed a desire for an alternative provider in the market. Thus, SLA Interpreting/translating was established.
