Sign Language Interpreter – Juru Bahasa Bahasa Isyarat

Sign language or bahasa isyarat is a different kind of language.

In wikipedia:

Sign languages (also known as signed languages) are languages that use the visual-manual modality to convey meaning. Sign languages are expressed through manual articulations in combination with non-manual elements. Sign languages are full-fledged natural languages with their own grammar and lexicon.

This can be seen in YouTube.

In the Indonesian version this is:
Bahasa Isyarat adalah bahasa yang mengutamakan komunikasi manual, bahasa tubuh, dan gerak bibir, bukannya suara, untuk berkomunikasi. Orang tuli adalah kelompok utama yang menggunakan bahasa ini, biasanya dengan mengkombinasikan bentuk tangan, orientasi dan gerak tangan, lengan, dan tubuh, serta ekspresi wajah untuk mengungkapkan pikiran mereka.
