Welcome to Scottish Association of Sign Language Interpreters – SASLI

Scottish Association of Sign Language Interpreters (SASLI) is the only Registering and Membership body in Scotland for British Sign Language (BSL)/English Interpreters, Deafblind Manual Interpreters and Guide Communicators.

BSL/English interpreters facilitate communication between Deaf BSL users and hearing people who do not use BSL. BSL/English interpreters are a valuable asset for the Deaf community, enabling access and reducing inequality while seeking information and services, and in employment, education, leisure environments, and many more.

SASLI Registered and Trainee Members, to maintain and enhance interpreting services and skills, are required to abide to

  • SASLI’s Code of Conduct and Professional Practice Policy, and
  • Continuing Professional Development Policy.

They are also subject to SASLI’s robust Complaints Policy and Procedure.

Unregistered interpreters may not have approved qualifications and training to provide an up to standard service. No formal complaints procedures exist to deal with concerns with unregistered interpreters.

Further information about SASLI, SASLI’s Registration procedures, and SASLI’s policies can be found on the website. SASLI’s Registered and Trainee Interpreters can be found on the ‘Find an Interpreter’ page.

If you cannot find what you wanted to see, please contact SASLI by email or phone, to help you with your query.
