Interpretation is one of the growing careers in the United States. Consistent with the growing diversity of the U.S. population, this field is expected to continue to develop. There is a need for qualified professionals to help healthcare providers, public agencies, private enterprises and human services organizations to communicate with the ever growing non-English speaking customer-base. MLL is one of handful institutions across the country that are trying to help meet the challenge through a training of high quality. Our program promotes national ethics and standards of practice in the field and can prepare interpreters to take national medical interpreter certification. The course covers ethics and conduct, basic skills, positioning and terminology, modes of interpreting, steps for sight translation, strategies for intervention, cultural mediation, and other vital skills and topics. Role plays, activities and group exercises provide hands-on experience for skills development.
Individuals who graduate from our program are able to take medical interpretation and community interpretation assignments. They work in settings such as healthcare, schools, welfare offices, conferences, meetings, and more.
