How do you translate English to ASL gloss?


Translating English into American Sign Language gloss is done when a person interprets hand motions that are then turned into written text. Using this form allows people to transcribe events, speeches or conversations that need a written account. This process takes dedication and the understanding that each word or hand signal can have several meanings.

The process of transcribing English into ASL gloss is a complicated method because each sign needs to be represented. Without a clear understanding of ASL, a person can have a difficult time translating each word into written text. However, glossing over certain words or transcribing them takes time and patience because there are words that exist in ASL that are not common in the English language. Another example of ASL glossing is when the individual that is transcribing the conversation needs to add words into the text. Many people that rely on ASL for communication drop certain words such as "a," "and" or "the," but the individual transcribing the conversation needs to know when to add them back in. The reason that many of these words are dropped is to shorten the amount of hand signals that are required to have a lengthy conversation with another person.
