Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf
The Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID) has played a leading role in establishing a national standard of quality for interpreters and transliterators. We encourage the growth of the profession, educate the public about the vital role of interpreters and transliterators and work to ensure equal opportunity and access for all individuals.
Mano a Mano
Mano a Mano is a non-profit organization of trilingual (Spanish, English and American Sign Language) interpreters in the United States who work in communities and settings where Spanish is prevalent. As interpreters, the organization regularly works with American Sign Language (ASL), Puerto Rican varieties of ASL, Spanish, and English. Their work is often called “trilingual interpreting.” However, within their work it is not uncommon to also be exposed to characteristics of signed languages from other Latin American communities.
The New York City Metro Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf, an affiliate chapter of the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID), is a non-profit, non-partisan organization of interpreters, Deaf community members and allies. Members work together to ensure that high-quality American Sign Language-English interpretation services are provided with the utmost integrity and respect.
