The Sign Language Interpreter and Transliterators listed hold themselves out as licensed professionals who provide sign language interpreting and or transliterating services. As mandated in legislation (N.C.G.S. 8B), the directory also lists individual interpreters or transliterators who are licensed and hold a legal interpreting specialist certificate. These individuals may interpret in judicial, administrative and legislative proceedings. The Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Services for the Deaf and the Hard of Hearing, does not endorse, license or certify any particular interpreter or transliterator. This listing does not constitute an endorsement by the Division or the State of North Carolina and is intended solely as a convenience to those persons or businesses who may wish to contract for interpreting services.
