Interpreter Strip

Japanese
Created:pre-1950s
Level:Tiger Cub, Cub Scout, Webelos Scout, Boy Scout, Venturer, and Scouter


The Interpreter Strip is not an award... it is optional insignia, not temporary insignia. Its sole purpose is to serve as an immediate, visual cue to others that you are able to perform as an interpreter, when needed... not to award your ability to converse in another language. (This is also why its placement on your uniform is near your nameplate.)

Interpreter strips are made in the alphabet of the native language represented, not the English language translation. To accommodate the cryptic characters of various languages, the size of each interpreter strip for each language may vary slightly.

Custom Interpreter Strips

However, that does not, in any way, mean that these are the only authorized Interpreter Strips. You can custom order any language through the BSA Supply Division. Just because it's not listed (above), that does not mean they don't already have it; nor does it mean that they will not make it for you.

See: Talk:Interpreter Strip#Custom Interpreter Strips for discussion about this.

Sign languages

Signing and American Sign Language are not the same thing; they are distinctly different forms of sign language for the hearing impaired. The Signing interpreter strip (BSA Supply No. 00390) is still listed in the Insignia Guide, but no longer listed at ScoutStuff.Org. You may still, however, be able to get it at a Scout shop, or order it through your Council Service Center or the BSA Supply Division (directly).

Placement

Immediately above (and flush with) the BSA strip (above right pocket); but, below the Varsity and/or Venture strip(s), if applicable. For guidance, see:

You may wear more than one Interpreter Strip — one for each language which you qualify. Do not place multiple Interpreter Strips side-by-side; place one immediately above the other.

Spoof patches are not authorized for wear on the BSA uniform.
