Sign Language Interpreting Professionals

Communication access is a basic human right. SLIP is focused on bridging the communication gap between the Deaf and hearing communities in a multitude of settings in Western Pennsylvania.


Welcome to the home of SLIP

We provide access to certified, registered, highly qualified, American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters. In addition, all SLIP interpreters are held to rigorous professional standards through the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID). SLIP also provides consulting services in the areas of communication access laws, interpreter requirements, and Deaf culture.

With a custom approach to scheduling requests for interpreters, SLIP treats every situation with care and professionalism. A family owned business, each situation is managed as if it were our own.

“On behalf of the University Events team, I wanted to extend our sincere thanks for providing wonderful interpreters for this year’s commencement ceremonies.  The ceremonies would not have been such a success without your time and efforts; they are always much appreciated! We look forward to working with you again next year.  Please extend our thanks to the interpreters!”

the right fit

The right fit

It is SLIP’s goal to make sure that every assignment is filled with the best fit of interpreter for the client and job.

Client Support

For those looking to hire interpreters, we provide assistance in helping you to do the right thing, versus paying for our services “because the ADA says so…”

“Keep the end user in mind at ALL times as you make choices.”

Our core values

SLIP was founded in July 2003 by a CODA (Child of Deaf Adults) who envisioned a company that would not simply assign interpreters to clients because “they could sign”, but rather a company concerned with the many facets of what quality communication access means.
