Professionalism as an Interpreter is available as an interactive e-learning course. The course is designed for multilingual speakers who are looking to either start a new career as an interpreter or incorporate interpreting into their current position. By the end of the course, participants will have a better working knowledge of the interpreting industry, the standards necessary to maintain an interpreting position, the role of an interpreter, and best practices while on the job.
The course gives an insider’s perspective of the interpreting industry. The course is broken into three modules, each corresponding to a stage in the process: before, during, and after an assignment. Module one focuses on the preparation and questions an interpreter should consider before an assignment. Module two explains the role of the interpreter and best practices for maintaining work flow while on the job. Module three walks the participant through conclusion processes.
