Presenting our first article available in BSL as well as English – courtesy of Signworld!

Posted on September 13, 2013

Today we present a Limping Chicken first – an article available in BSL as well as English, specially translated into BSL for us by Signworld, the BSL learning resources website – who are also one of our supporters!

We thought the most appropriate article to get us started was Andy Palmer’s ’10 Reasons Why You Should Learn Sign Language‘ which has just gone online!

We hope you enjoy the article whether you’re watching it in BSL or reading it in English – or even a bit of both!

We are delighted to say that from now on, Signworld will be translating one of our articles into BSL every month. We’d like to know what you think would be the best way to do this:

  • Should we just pick a forthcoming article that we feel is of high interest to BSL users and translate that?
  • Should we make it retrospective and ask you to nominate an article for translation, then pick the one that gets the most requests?
  • Or what?

Tell us what you think in the comments below!

We at LC are clucking and flapping our little wings with excitement at the prospect of making more of our great journalism accessible in BSL. We hope you are too, and look forward to your suggestions!

The Limping Chicken is the world's most popular Deaf blog, and is edited by Deaf journalist and filmmaker Charlie Swinbourne.
