For the most part, you can get away with directly translating word for word. Technically ASL has a different grammar than English, but all the deaf people I've met are comfortable with English grammar.

One issue you will run into is words that have multiple meanings. For example, the sign for the word "like" is different depending on meaning:
I like cats; they taste like chicken.
When translating the above into sign language the sign for the first "like" would be different from the second one.

The easiest way to get the signs in the computer would be to put some kind of sensors on the hands and fingers of an expert and have them do the signs, then use their motions for the robot.
