CUSTOMIZED BUSINESS AND COMMUNITY INTERPRETER TRAINING ON-SITE
The Business and Community Interpreter Training Course is a training program geared towards those interested in acquiring interpreting skills related to educational, social service, immigration service, business, or general community fields. The course was developed for interpreters who work in businesses, schools, community services, or government organizations.
The type of Interpreter training program depends upon each particular student group, and training curriculum is customized to meet their specific needs.
Our Business and Community Interpreter Training programs on-site include (but are not limited to):
1) Educational Interpreting
The main responsibility of an educational interpreter is to convert spoken words from one language into another in order to provide communication services for non-English speaking individuals in a school setting.
In this type of environment, educational interpreters are exposed to a variety of responsibilities including interpreting lesson plans for foreign students, integrating English language training into regular educational studies, providing clear communication between teachers and parents with limited English proficiency, and interpreting at IEP (Individual Education Plan) meetings at public schools.
2) Interpreting for Immigration and Naturalization Services
Immigration and Naturalization Services are very important to individuals seeking citizenship or residency. Immigration Interpreters understand that effective and accurate interpretation can make a significant difference in an immigration hearing. Even the slightest miscommunication can send the wrong message to the immigration officer, resulting in the denial of a visa or even deportation.
Unlike in immigration court, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office do not provide interpreters for immigration interviews. An applicant must find his or her own interpreter, and as such often rely on freelancers. Immigration Interpreters provide reliable and professional immigration interpretation services to their clients in order to ensure accurate communication throughout the citizenship process.
3) Business Interpreting
Business interpreters provide consecutive and simultaneous interpretation for functions such as multilingual conferences, boardroom meetings, multi-cultural events, trade shows and business negotiations.
Business interpreters must have excellent skills in the given language combination and technical knowledge in the field specified by the client.
Business Interpreting is ideal for situations such as:
- Business Meetings
- Study Visits
