The Interpreter Strip can be earned in one of the following languages....

BSA does NOT specify anywhere that these are the only languages available for earning the Interpreter Strip. While they may be the only ones the BSA Supply Division currently has available, you can still earn the Interpreter Strip award for any language (other than English), as well as American Sign Language (ASL), Morse Code and Signing. —RWSmith (Bureaucrat), 15:43, August 30, 2009 (EDT)

We have been instructed that the official "signing" and "American Sign Language" strips have been retired with no plans to recreate. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dtesterman (talkcontribs) December 9, 2010. (Please, sign and date your posts on talk pages.)
I have revised the article based on the information I have. Please try to give us a source for your information, so I can try to verify. Thanks, —RWSmith (Bureaucrat), 17:11, December 11, 2010 (EST)

Custom Interpreter Strips

As far as I know, you can still custom order any language through the BSA Supply Division. (Just because it's not listed at ScoutStuff.Org, that does not mean they don't already have it; nor does it mean that they will not make it for you.) I do expect you'll have to order a minimum (probably, two) and pay a little extra.

If anybody has anything different on this, please post it here. Thanks, —RWSmith (Bureaucrat), 18:03, December 11, 2010 (EST)

Sign Languages

I have removed the section on Sign Languages because the information appears to be out of date. There is no longer any "Signing" interpreter strip available at the online Scout Shop nor referenced in the Guide to Awards and Insignia. For historical purposes, here is the text of the section I removed:

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 ScoutShop.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).
