Sign Language Interpreting

Hands Up Communications provides quality interpreting services in any setting; including medical, legal, K12, post-secondary, business, etc. We know that life doesn’t just happen 8:00 – 5:00, so our phones are answered 24/7 to assist with any interpreting need that arises.

Foreign Language Interpreting

We have expanded our services to include foreign language interpretation both on-site and video-remote.

Video Remote Interpreting

Video remote interpreting brings our services directly to your location through a PC, tablet, or smartphone. When distance separates you from a qualified interpreter, VRI is a convenient and cost-effective alternative.


Transcription is a valuable tool for deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals in a class-room or medical setting, providing the client with a live transcript of the class or meeting. Our team of transcriptionists has the skills to provide you with post-production captioning services or speech-to-text transcripts for prerecorded videos or audio files.


Hands Up Communications has a mission to empower the community through our services and training. We offer Deaf culture education to local businesses at no cost as well as sign-language classes for a small fee.

Employment Services

Our agency works with deaf individuals who are seeking employment opportunities, giving them the tools they need to achieve their employment and independence goals.
