Our growth over the last few years is in no way accidental; we’re a collection of professionals who love people and have a skillset to create connections. We’re also a collection of people who love and understand the promise of technology and how it can create connections, understanding, and access.
It’s just that the people we create connections for have fewer choices. People and their technology could be more or better. It doesn't have to be one way, because that's the easiest or default path. That way of thinking is a tipping point and one we’ve been championing for a while. From our service offerings, we hope you get the sense of our passion as well, and our excitement about reaching a larger group of people, worldwide.
ASLI and New Language are working to create the “both/and” choices technology promised us. Our family, friends, colleagues and partners, students and children, who are also part of the LEP and/or the Deaf community, deserve “both/and” choices, and not "either/or" defaults.
Who we are
ASLI Interpreting is the merger of American Sign Language Inc., Divas Interpretations, and Clear Messaging Interpreting Services, creating one of the leading interpreter companies for spoken word and ASL in the United States. With a strong presence in New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, North Carolina, and Washington State, ASLI Interpreting is well-versed in all aspects of interpreting services. Additionally, we have demonstrated expertise in providing specialized services to individuals who are Deaf, DeafBlind or Hard-of-Hearing.
New Language Partners has created two distinct areas of specialism delivering best-in-class localization and interpreting services. The Language Localization Group provides translation, and transcreation services under the TB Alliance brand; the Interpreting Solutions Group provides sign language and spoken word interpreting under the ASLI Interpreting brand.
Founded in 1987 by Frederic Jondreau, ASLI (American Sign Language, Inc.) began as the first privately-owned ASL school in New York.
As a result of the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act in 1990, interest in the Deaf community and in ASL exploded. In addition to teaching an eight-week course in ASL, Mr. Jondreau also began interpreting for the Deaf community, expanding to become the original ASLI interpreting service.
