Houston, TX, the fourth largest city in the US, is a stewing pot of many languages and cultures. With over 90 languages being spoken amongst its population; it makes communication extremely difficult for the hearing impaired who depend entirely on sign language. With around 1% of the population of USA being deaf or hard of hearing; American Sign Language is fast becoming the most commonly used language amongst the hearing impaired of North America. As a result, there has been a growing demand for quality American Sign Language (ASL) translators around Houston.
At the forefront of the effort to satisfy this increasing need is Languages Unlimited, with over 20 years of experience and over 10,000 linguists spread around the globe. Certified by both the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID) and National Association of the Deaf (NAD); the company is perfectly qualified to provide sign language interpreter services of the very best quality. It is also notable that Languages Unlimited has some of the lowest rates amongst those offering sign language services in the Houston, TX area.

We offer on-site interpretation to not only important official events such as courtroom proceedings, depositions, recorded statements, trials immigration meetings, conventions and conferences, employee meetings and business meetings; but also provide services to occasions such as classes, job interviews and even assist as full-time interpreters.
Clients are able opt for onsite simultaneous or consecutive interpretation.
1. Consecutive Interpretation
Consecutive Interpretation allows the speaker to say their message at a stretch for a short period of time, before the interpreter translates to the required language. This type of situation is more suited to situations such as business meetings, medical consultation, and courtroom proceedings where it would be easier to speak at length without interruptions.
2. Simultaneous Interpretation
Simultaneous Interpretation has the interpreter saying the words of the speaker live; that is to interpret the signing as it is done. This is most appropriate for large gatherings such as conferences or classrooms; where minimal delays are required.
Language Unlimited provides unparalleled and accurate service through its network of linguists; 24 hours a day, all seven days a week. Besides Houston, we also provide our services in other cities like Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, and Fort Worth to name a few.
