The following survey report is the first comprehensive survey of deaf interpreters in Europe. The survey was conducted during the Spring of 2016, and the report finalised in December 2016. The survey shows that the situation of deaf interpreters in many countries is obviously in a transitional phase, which naturally influences the understanding of the concept behind deaf interpreters. The definition and concept of deaf interpreters differs from country to country. In some countries the group of deaf interpreters is divided into subgroups, with different tasks and training.
