Make the important content of your website or printed materials easily accessible for your deaf clients/customers by adding a link to a quality Auslan translation.

For many Deaf people, Auslan is their primary language and they have to work hard to fully understand complex communication in English.

Offering them an Auslan translation via a link on your website, or QR codes on printed material, would make them much more likely to engage with your content and your organisation, and would be a strong statement of your commitment to equality of access.

MyAuslan translations are done to the highest standard in Australia, with the Auslan performed by a degree qualified Deaf native signer.

For many deaf people, including those born and bred in Australia, English is their 2nd language, and complex written English can sometimes cause confusion or misunderstandings.

Including a link to an Auslan translation helps ensure they can understand your message more easily and would be a strong statement of your commitment to equality of access.

Feeling confused by an email or letter from the government or big company that is full of complicated English or jargon?

Don’t worry, we can translate it into Auslan for you!

For many Deaf people, Auslan is their first language and English is their second language. You should not feel embarrassed if you find complicated English confusing sometimes.

For other communities for whom English is their 2nd language, government departments and big companies will often translate important letters or other communication into foreign languages, but they rarely think to do that for Deaf people.

MyAuslan can help you by translating your documents into Aslan. To proceed, click on the link below. Simply fill in the online form, upload the document, and we will reply with a quote within 24 hours. Once you accept the quote, and pay the invoice, we will record a video of the Auslan translation and email it to you.

For many Deaf people, Auslan is their first language and English is their second language.  You should not feel embarrassed if you sometimes find it difficult to find the right words in English.

All us Deafies know what it’s like when some Hearing bureaucrat misunderstands your message, or assumes you’re dumb just because your English isn’t perfect. Frustrating, isn’t it?!

MyAuslan translations help you fix this problem by allowing you to use your preferred language (Auslan of course).  Why do the hard work of converting your message to English when we can do it for you?

You get to choose the type and level of English you want:

  1. Match my Auslan (ie casual, including slang etc)
  2. Proper English (ie grammatically correct, but same level as the Auslan)
  3. “Don’t F*ck with Me” English (ie Formal and high-level English for important matters or for responding to patronising Hearies who treat you like you’re dumb!

All our Auslan to English translations are written or quality controlled by a practising translator with 30 years professional experience, including in communication, copywriting and contract drafting.

Translations of 3 pages or less can generally be produced within 3 working days.

For larger jobs (> 3 pages), We will confirm the lead time when providing our quote. Please specify the deadline required when placing your order, and we will do our best to meet it.

By default videos will be supplied in MP4 format. However other formats may be available by request. You can add this request when placing your order and we will contact you if the requested format is not possible.

File size is determined by the amount of material being translated. Very low resolution is generally not suitable for Auslan translations as important linguistic features can be lost or difficult to read. As a guide, a one page (approx 500 words) English transcript will result in an Auslan translation video file size of approximately 100MB.

By default we will edit the video for you. If you prefer to edit it yourself, when placing your order and a discount for this will be factored into your quoted price.
