Who is a Trained Interpreter?

There are several components to being a fully trained interpreter.  In addition to being able to speak multiple languages, it is imperative that the interpreter is thoroughly trained.

We invite you to participate in LTC Echo’s 360° Interpreter Training, which offers the following: 

  • Language Assessment - Ensures proficiency in native and target languages. Language assessment also allows for evaluation of the vocabulary set of the interpreter, and determines whether she/he will need specialized terminology training, such as medical or mental health specific vocabulary.

  • Role of the Interpreter - Executes efficiently the multiple functions of the interpreter. Commits to the national standards, laws, and expectations of interpreting which is crucial considering the paucity of training available in the interpreting field.

  • Interpreting Skills - Practices specific skill set shared in the interpreting profession to facilitate communication as a third party. Interpreters actively practice these skills including: register, sight translation, code-switching, cognitive strengthening, active and critical listening, and more.

  • Professionalism – Offers culturally appropriate customer service within industry-specific protocol
