About us

We’re a nationwide booking organisation who provide New Zealand Sign Language and English interpreters. As a charitable organisation we keep the community at the heart of what we do. Any profit we make we look for ways to put back into supporting the community.

At iSign, we like to provide an easy, friendly but most importantly, professional booking service. As a team we are dedicated to and passionate about delivering an excellent service. We go to great lengths and take great care to find the best interpreter to match each specific communication need.

How are we Deaf friendly?

SLIANZ supports high standards of interpreting access for the Deaf community through offering professional development, a code of ethics, a complaints procedure, and advocating for the use of qualified interpreters.
