Looking back and reading the paper, I realize how little I dreamt — all translators I thought of were non-Deaf. Over the years, there is a growing number of Deaf translators and if I am not mistaken, all of them are on-side jobs, or on contract. With better understanding of what translation involves, with various theories, we are better able to translate, mostly from written form to signed languages.
In creating this space, we need to look into a different frame to consider what translation means to us and bring to the table to professionalize the field and practice. Without any doubt it should be Deaf people doing the work. We all can work together how to make it a permanent profession, with Deaf people having a full time job as professional, licensed translators.
Not only this, but each person will be encouraged to do self-analysis and recognize their identities as translators — one of the first steps towards professionalization. I, as presenter, will encourage participants to look at the field and work together to make it happen and complete the road.

Results: The results of the nationwide GINKO study show that hearing-impaired people in North Rhine-Westphalia draw on assistive services in employment more often than hearing-impaired people in the rest of Germany. Conclusion: One reason for the more positive evaluations of the participants in North Rhine-Westphalia as compared to other regions in Germany could be the particular network of support services in that state.
However, the overall positive results from North Rhine-Westphalia should not obscure the fact that a majority of participants in many areas of North Rhine-Westphalia reported much less positive evaluations. They reported that they did not yet have an accessible workplace and that assistive services are not available to all hearing impaired workers.
