The best-of-the-best: how we evaluate and select our team
We carefully evaluate the skills, experience, and training of interpreter applicants to ensure they possess the superior language proficiency, appropriate area of expertise, and highest ethical practices necessary to serve our clients well and best represent our company. Our interpreters' second-language proficiency is tested and double-rated at a minimum level of 'Advanced-Mid' by Language Testing International using the standards set by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL). We proudly implement the National Standards of Practice for interpreters and translators developed by the National Council on Interpreting in Healthcare and the American Translators Association and uphold the Code of Ethics of our profession. Interpreters must then pass our in-agency exams on medical terminology and interpreter standards and ethics. Observation sessions with our experienced interpreters and hospital orientation classes are also required.
