HandDancer Interpreter Services

HandDancer Interpreting Services was born of the need for a local agency which could provide professional services in American Sign Language interpreting to consumers in the NW corner of Washington State. As members of the Whatcom Interpreter Network (WIN), a collective of professional interpreters, we served the area as independent contractors for many years.  Now we work together under the umbrella of HandDancer Interpreter Services.

HandDancer Interpreting Services provides American Sign Language/English interpreter services on an as-needed basis, 24 hours a day/7 days a week.
