Working with interpreters is a vital practice when you’re looking to globalize your business. Liaising with foreign clients and multilingual populations is more common than ever before. Business and Health Care travelers are the new normal. Interpreters facilitate efficient communication between parties that don’t speak a common language. Business, legal and medical encounters rely more and more on language services staff. Interpreters help ideas, concepts and information to be exchanged successfully. However, there’s a first time for everything—and working with an interpreter is no different.
We’ve created this course to help companies and organizations who want to learn how to work effectively with interpreters. Hiring the proper interpreter for the job makes an extraordinary difference to your client experience. A properly trained interpreter essentially disappears, allowing communication to flow as naturally as though everyone spoke the same language.
Working with Interpreters in a Professional Setting is available as an e-learning course. This quick course is designed for employees and teams who work with international populations and clients.
