A spoken language interpreter in the European Union, Miguel Gomes, wrote about his experience working with sign language interpreters at the 2003 European Disabilities Forum.

He does a nice job of using himself as the foil to provide some education. It does seem like the working conditions of even conference-level sign language interpreters is in need of some support. Working solo all day? Wait until the rash of repetitive motion injuries hits! It'll happen eventually, don't you think?
