International Day of Sign Languages

International Day of Sign Languages
Which do you do more: read or listen to the spoken word? The news, books, conversations...

UN has declared this day as the International Day of Sign Languages, even though it is only celebrated in some countries.

There are approximately 72 million deaf people worldwide and they use more than 300 different sign languages. 

Has it ever occurred to you just how important written text really is, especially for the deaf? And do you know what kind of problems deaf translators come across?
