Let’s be honest, the deaf signing community has been deprived of information in their first language for far too long. If your organisation is now embracing the changes needed and you are looking to provide accessible information or advice to your Deaf clients, customers or staff through British Sign Language, then DFBS can help.
By providing information and advice in BSL, not only will you be meeting the requirements of the Equality Act, but it will also show a dedication to better engagement with the Deaf community and can make Deaf staff feel more included in your organisation.
Here at DFBS, we are able to create BSL video content suitable for your website or for use on DVDs. All translation work will be completed by an experienced local Deaf professional, ensuring that it’s a recognised and trusted face for the community and also that the appropriate regional sign language dialect (accent) is used.
Our translations can be found at a wide range of places, including many Healthwatch areas, Cardiff Castle, Welsh Assembly, Police Forces, Health Boards and many more.
DFBS owner and lead translator, Sarah Lawrence has many years experience of translation provision on the ITV News, programmes for BBC, CBeebies, S4C and has also assisted many organisations across the UK with the creation of their BSL content.
