Who am i?

Helen Foulkes, BA Hons, PGCE, RSLT, MASLI

BSL Translations:

I am a freelance qualified Sign Language Translator registered with both the National Registers of Communication Professionals Working with Deaf and Deafblind People (NRCPD) and the Association of Sign Language Interpreters (ASLI).

I offer a reliable and professional translation service from written English into BSL. 

High quality work is a given and as a reflective practitioner, I strive to give you my very best. Every translation assignment I undertake will be delivered with integrity, within my competence and to the highest professional standards.

Confidentiality is paramount to my work unless the translation is to be shown in the public domain. 

All my work is covered by Public Indemnity Insurance.

Other Services:


As a qualified teacher, I can also offer bespoke training to a variety of audiences such as university students, trainee interpreters, families wanting to learn to sign with their Deaf children, private 1:1 or small group sign language tuition.

Deafblind Guidance and Communication:

There are approximately 23,000 Deafblind people in the UK and I can offer Deafblind Visual Frame, Deafblind Hands-On and Deafblind Manual Communication for Deafblind individuals.
