Healthcare Interpreting With The Heart In Mind

Healthcare interpreting is a fantastic career for bilingual adults. Whether you enter it part time, as a side-hustle, or as a full-time career there are many different paths and opportunities for growth. Many take our standard medical interpreter training course and make successful careers without any additional instruction. Others elect to continue their education with our advanced medical interpreting course to prepare for their medical interpreters licensing examination. It cannot be stressed enough that advanced interpreter training consists of additional training that is not required to become a medical interpreter. You don't have to continue your training, or pursue a medical interpreters' license to be successful.  The students who do continue their training, do so because they aspire to work for hospitals, or they want to work for an agency, or they want to specialize their training. Just like doctors choose a specialty, medical interpreters can choose a specialization as well. A medical interpreting specialization could include anything from orthopedics, to radiology, to cardiology or anything in between. By choosing a speciality in medical interpreting training, students and their future clients benefit in 3 key ways...

Interpreting In Orthopedics & The Fundamentals Of Vocabulary

Interpreting is not something that should be taken lightly. Whether we are talking about legal, business or medical interpreting- providing interpreting services for a paying clientele indicates customers are paying for a high level of expertise. When customers pay someone to handle things for them, it's because the other person is an expert in that field. Just because bilingual adults are fluent in 2 languages, doesn't make them an expert interpreter. Sure, knowing both languages is a definite start, but that doesn't make you a medical interpreter on its' own. Imagine you are a 19 year old college student in your first year of law school, and you have to appear before a court to plead a case. The rational person would go ahead and hire a lawyer to plead the case before a judge. Primarily because the lawyer knows more than you do, they have studied the law and dedicated their life towards understanding it.

Certified Interpreters & Their Connection To The First Thanksgiving

Certified interpreters are the bilingual adults who have dedicated their time and efforts towards ensuring that everyone should be able to communicate with each other- regardless of the language they understand. Their job is more involved than just being bilingual... although it certainly helps. Certified interpreters are the people who have attended interpreter school and then gone on to get official certification through their states' licensing board. It takes a lot of time and effort to become a certified interpreter but for a truly great interpreter- their education and training is never complete. Because they understand that there is more to the profession than being bilingual, and they recognize that language is as much about vocabulary as it is situational. Take yourself, for example. You speak differently to your friends than you do to at your job. Especially if you have a specialized career, like a surgeon for example, who spent years studying and perfecting their field... They would explain a procedure to a coworker using a far more complex vocabulary than they would explain it to their patient, who requires the same explanation just with a more common terminology. Our interpreter training programs are taught by expert instructors ✅who have real-world interpreting experience- as medical interpreters, legal interpreters, immigration interpreters, and any other online interpreter training course we provide. They have created their individual interpreting training courses to be unique and engaging✅ for their students, who will always receive LIVE instruction✅ as all of our online courses use video conferencing webinar formatting✅. As we continue to educate the next generation of language interpreters, and language translators our thoughts travel back in time. How was the first Thanksgiving possible? How were the Native Americans able to communicate with the colonialist settlers?

Interpreters Brought Halloween Traditions To The USA- Here’s How!

Interpreters are the ones who keep traditions and customs alive. By sharing them with a wider audience, who then encourage others to participate, interpreters ensure traditions and stories are passed on for others to share and enjoy. Interpreters are the links between the old and young, ensuring that the ways of old don't get lost. Think about the elders in your life- the ones who might have immigrated through Elis Island (in New York), Angel Island (in San Francisco) or maybe they crossed the Texas-Mexico boarder in the '80s. Whatever their stories involve that got them to United States, it's a strong probability that it doesn't involve English. So then how did we retain all these Halloween traditions from other countries? Through the children who were born on US soil, who were taught celebratory traditions from their homelands. In the United States, we celebrate Halloween by dressing in creative costumes and accompany our children as they collect candy by trick-or-treating throughout the neighborhood. Other countries assign much meaning to their late-October celebrations that, without bilingual interpreters and English translators, would not be customary for United States citizens to adopt over time...

Translation Courses And Work That’s Required In Different Industries

Translation courses for bilingual adults can be used as a tool to kickstart a career change. Whether your goal is to transition into the healthcare, public service or legal industry- bilingual adults can find a lot of work that utilizes their language skills and suits their career goals.

As such, medical interpreter training is a good fit for someone who is personable, comfortable with public speaking and who doesn't mind having face-to-face interactions all day. A medical interpreter is someone who has devoted time and effort into perfecting their verbal communication skills, vocabulary and understanding of complex medical concepts into more than one language, so that they can easily relay communication back and forth between a doctor who might only speak English and a patient who might only speak Spanish. A certified translator on the other hand, is someone who has developed their written communication skills in multiple languages, to such a degree that they can easily understand and translate court documents, or medical records from one language to another. A translation certificate is required for adults who have already taken interpreting courses, but intend to work with source text that uses complex vocabulary and concepts.

English To Russian Interpreter Training For Bilingual Adults

English to Russian interpreter training is an investment for any bilingual adult. To be able to work for yourself and do so remotely, either full-time or as a part-time "side hustle" to supplement income during an economic downturn; are ideals that working adults are actively searching for in regards to employment opportunities, in a post-quarantine world. In March 2020, governments around the world issued stay-at-home Covid-19 lockdowns that forced all non-essential employees to work from home until they were lifted 5 months later. And although everyone had vastly different experiences -both positive and negative- during lockdown, many of us - especially millennials and Gen-Z - have gotten used to working from home and don't want to go back to an office. For bilingual adults fluent in the Russian and English languages, who are looking for a career change but don't know where to start, Russian interpreter training is a great place to start.

Chinese Medical Interpreter Training for Bilingual Adults

Chinese medical interpreter training is a valuable skill for bilingual adults, especially those who are fluent in English as well as Cantonese or Mandarin. Although there are hundreds of different dialects within Mandarin, Gu, Gan, Xiang, Min, Hakka, Yum, Jun, Huizhou and Pinghua - it is far and away more beneficial to seek certification in these two "standard Chinese" dialects. For those considering a career change to a field like medical interpreting who are fluent in more than one Chinese dialect, we are commonly asked "which dialect is in more demand? Which is the most commonly spoken Chinese dialect to provide interpreting services for?" Unfortunately, this is an impossible question to answer because there isn't a perfect one-size-fits-all answer. In fact, the only truthful answer we can provide is "The most beneficial Chinese dialect to interpret for is the one most commonly spoken in your general area." So what does Chinese medical interpreter training consist of? What can you expect from your new career?

Portuguese Immigration Interpreters & 3 Ways They Make A Difference

Portuguese immigration interpreters can find loads of meaningful ways to give back to their communities- even if it's just by capitalizing off of their language skills! There are approximately 1.2 million Portuguese speakers in the United States, who range from fluent English speakers to Limited English Proficient (LEP); meaning that there is a large demand for bilingual Portuguese interpreters in the United States who can also speak English fluently. Despite the United States currently seeing the lowest illegal boarder crossing rates from Portuguese speaking countries in Latin America (like Brazil, Venezuela, Paraguay etc) more than half of those who are seeking asylum speak little to no English as it is. The good news is: for those bilingual adults looking for a career change, studying to become an immigration interpreter is an investment that can provide a job with purpose that is location independent, offers a better work-life balance and the potential for financial stability once certified.

English Interpreters At School For Children With IEPs

English interpreters at school make a huge impact not only for schools and the children who learn there, but for their families as well. Currently, there are 10.5 million children of immigrant families who are in grades K-12 living in the United States; and every one of them needs an education. Despite the fact that some of these foreign-born children are able to speak some English, others don't speak any English at all- who would be classified as Limited English Proficient or LEP- when they arrive to the United States. Sometimes, the children can speak some English themselves but their parents don't at all; how, then are teachers supposed to communicate with these students and their parents? What about the children with an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or special needs? What level of support can parents expect that schools can reasonably deliver?

Language Interpreters And 3 Reasons Every School Needs Them

Language interpreters can work in a variety of different fields ranging from healthcare, to  law, to education and beyond. For bilingual adults who aspire to work in education, our community interpreter certificate training program could turn those dreams into reality. The term community interpreter refers to someone who bridges the gap between a Limited English Proficient (LEP) person and the community they find themselves in. Imagine for a minute that you have to leave the United States and move to Japan- you would rely on a community interpreter to help you find housing, a job, go through the foreign resident registry and more. Community interpreting allows bilingual adults find work to help the most disadvantaged populations, and while it is unfortunate, the children who find themselves in those circumstances are too often overlooked. For a language interpreter who works in education, many of the students they work with are from foreign countries whose parents may also speak little to no English.

Legal Interpreter Certificate Training For Bilingual Portuguese Adults

Legal interpreter certification training is a fantastic career change opportunity for bilingual adults, who are fluent in Portuguese and English; especially for those who want to make a difference. A legal interpreter is someone who translates for non-English speakers during legal proceedings (think immigration hearings, depositions, citizenship proceedings etc). They are called to work for a person who is Limited English Proficient (LEP) because that person only speaks Portuguese. Legal interpreters primarily work in a courtroom or legal office, and they must translate everything that is said from English to Portuguese- so their client can understand- and from Portuguese to English - so the courtroom can understand. Legal interpreting might seem like an easy profession for someone who is fluent in both languages, but it takes a lot of skill and practice to do it correctly every single time. Here's what you can expect from legal interpreter certification training...

Translator Certificate & Debunking 3 Medical Interpreting Myths

Translator certificate or interpreting certificate? What's the difference? For starters, a professional translator is a bilingual adult who converts written text (think posters, forms, books etc) from one language to another. On the other hand, a professional interpreter is a bilingual worker who goes to appointments (either in person or remotely) with a client and relays verbal information to them in the language they can understand. The difference comes down to this: interpreters work with verbal information and translators work with written information. There is certainly some crossover- for instance, who would write the closed captions and subtitles for movies and TV shows?- but bilingual professionals can even specialize in one or the other. These terms are often used interchangeably but they do have different implications. Did you know this? If not, keep reading!

Bilingual Medical Interpreter Answers 3 Frequently Asked Questions

A bilingual medical interpreter has an important job, which involves more than being fluent in English and another language. Medical interpreters must have an extensive knowledge of medical terminology, have a thorough understanding of the interpreter code of ethics, and be intimately familiar with the procedures they will be conversing about. You must be prepared to confidently interpret anything a doctor or surgeon may say to the patient- your client- and vice versa. An exceptional translator is someone who is not only skilled at, but comfortable with implementing their simultaneous interpreting experience in real life scenarios, that can have real, life-or-death consequences if a mistake is made. All of this and more is covered in our online medical interpreting training course by expert instructors who lead their students through a unique and engaging remote learning experience- where each remote class is 100% LIVE through video conference technology, which provides the best remote learning environment possible.

For many bilingual adults, making the decision to become a medical translator is not easy, but if you are one of them and thinking about it yourself, you might be wondering what these answers are...

Immigration Interpreter Certification and 3 Things To Do Afterwards

An immigration interpreter certification is obtained after bilingual adults students successfully complete our 45-hour online interpreter training class. Taught by expert instructors  who have real-world immigration interpreting experience, we provide a unique and engaging  approach to remote learning, through our 100% LIVE webinar style classes that allow students to interact with and ask questions in real time.

This is only a brief list of the skills good immigration interpreters must possess and could go on forever. The point is: an immigration interpreter plays a crucial role in their community and they must be experts at it before going out and working with real-world clients, to whom a single translation error has detrimental real-world consequences. But if you're reading this, you probably already know what an immigration interpreter does and are here to find out... What can you do with an immigration interpreter certification?

Community Translator Certificate and 3 Ways It Gives Back

A community translator certificate is a special thing that benefits so many more people than just the bilingual adult, and everyone they serve. The community interpreter is someone who provides interpreting and translation services in a wider range of situations than their colleague who chose a specialty; like medical or legal. With a specialization comes a deeper, microscopic dive into the vocabulary and concepts- whereas business and community interpreter training provides an opportunity for students to interpret in multiple situations, with a more generalized, macroscopic approach to interpret for a wide variety of purposes. The distinction here is very important, so to put it another way, think of a researcher who is studying how pollution changes a forest. They might use a microscope to study one specific, individual plant in the forest for a detailed  look at how pollution changed that one plants' color or size. But a forest is not one individual plant, so she would need to zoom out and study the changes in all the plants there. This is a similar to how a community translator certificate benefits the singular person receiving interpreting services, and the impact it has on their community.

English Interpreters Are For Weddings This Valentine’s Day

English interpreters are employed in a variety of different fields, most commonly working as medical, legal, community or immigration interpreters. Mainstream interpreting jobs in these industries are important - but they aren't for everyone. In fact, freelance interpreters can put their language skills to work in other, just as meaningful yet unconventional ways. That's one of the perks to learning a new skill - you can put it use however you see fit! One lucrative way English interpreters have made a profit is by offering their services to couples on their wedding day. In these modern times, there are no legal limitations to love- thanks to the Respect for Marriage Act (ROMA) recently signed into law. And although bias and discrimination unfortunately still persist, couples are legally free marry anyone they deem worthy regardless of gender, sex, religion, race and ethnicity.

Interpreter Certification & Your Pay In 2 Top Earning Fields

An interpreter certification can mean different things to different people. To some, it can mean a certified interpreter and to others it can mean a licensed interpreter. A certified interpreter is someone who has completed interpreter training and knows enough about interpreting to find some work. A licensed interpreter is someone who holds an official interpreting license, that can only be issued by the National Board of Certification for Medical Interpreters (NBCMI). The tricky thing here is that some people who aren't as familiar with interpreting might not know enough about the interpreting certification process, so you have to be very clear about your qualifications. The thing to remember is: all licensed interpreters are certified interpreters... but certified interpreters are not officially licensed until they take the exam. Similar to how doctors must hold a valid license to work in a hospital as a doctor, you must hold an interpreters license to work for the government or to hold an official position. The interpreter licensing exam is a standardized test and you must prove that you have studied enough hours- with an interpreter certification- and practiced interpreting sufficiently just to sign up for the licensing exam. The distinction between a certified and licensed interpreter may seem trivial at first, but it is a very important one to make. Not only can you earn more as a licensed interpreter, but you can also find more work with an interpreter license. The thing is: you must become certified before getting licensed, and there is no way around that.

Russian Medical Interpreting In The United States

Getting a Russian medical interpreting certificate in the United States is a process that takes time and it all depends on where you want to end up interpreting, and what you want to do with it. Some people who have medical translator certification, want to advance their careers in hospital administration. Every hospital is different in their requirements for medical interpreters, but every hospital needs someone to translate documents and interpret for Limited English Proficient (LEP) patients.

Remote Portuguese Medical Interpreter Training

Portuguese medical interpreter training is something everyone should consider if they are bilingual in Portuguese and English. According to the census bureau, there are roughly 1.5 million Portuguese-Americans who live in states like Massachusetts, California and Rhode Island. Further findings by the census bureau reveal that as of 2016, 35 million U.S citizens over 18 speak a language other than English at home and that 67% of immigrants report speaking little to no English. What these figures tell us is that Portuguese is a widely spoken language in the United States, and that a nearly half of the people who can speak it have some trouble understanding English. Limited English Proficient (LEP) adults make up a huge population of the United States and they deserve the same quality of medical care as everyone else. This idea- that everyone deserves to understand and be understood- is referred to as language accessibility in the interpreting world. Portuguese medical interpreting is a career that allows bilingual adults to bring more equality to their communities, and do so remotely if they choose. Ever since the Covid-19 pandemic hit back in March 2020, remote work became the most desirable and most sought after by younger people who understand the value. In today's day and age, remote work and remote learning are more than a priority- they are a necessity. So what are the benefits of a remote Portuguese medical interpreter training course?

Ukrainian Medical Interpreting & 3 Reasons It’s Essential In The U.S

Geo-political conflicts- whether they occur thousands of miles away or in your home country- cause multiple ripple effects around the world. When events like the Ukrainian- Russian conflict force people to flee from their homes, a demand for certain skills increases exponentially. Crises such as these require the help of bilingual individuals who can deliver care, information and assist in relocating somewhere else. Ukrainian medical interpreting in the United States is especially critical because displaced people are arriving in need of medical assistance, where an estimated 54% are Limited English Proficient (LEP)- meaning they cannot communicate well or at all with English speaking doctors. Of the 6 million internationally displaced Ukrainian civilians, the United States has promised resettlement protection to as many as 100,000 since February 2022, and resettled 15,000 so far. Joining the 1.1 million Ukrainian-Americans- accounting for 1% of the 44.9 million immigrant community- makes the U.S home to the second largest population of Ukrainian immigrants in the world, second only to Russia. Today, most Ukrainian-born U.S citizens became naturalized and gained legal permanent residence status after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. Nearly half of whom made homes within the major cities located in New York, Illionis, Washington and California. But why is it critical for English speaking Ukrainians to become medical interpreters vs any other kind of interpreting?

And although being bilingual is a requirement for medical interpreting, there is so much more to the profession that you can only learn in medical interpreting classes.

3 Reasons Portuguese Medical Interpreting Is Needed In New Jersey

Portuguese medical interpreting is needed in every major city in the United States. According to the census bureau, there are roughly 1.5 million Portuguese-Americans. Of them, the language varies based on region of origin which can be categorized into 2 main groups: the Southern and Central dialects and the Northern dialects; which all have multiple different sub-versions within them. As a result, there are millions of Portuguese speakers residing all over the world in countries within Europe to South and North America, to Asia and Oceania. And while Portuguese is spoken in most major cities in states like Massachusetts, California, Rhode Island, and New York- there is a higher percentage of Portuguese-Americans residing in New Jersey; specifically in the larger Newark area. There was a time in the late 20th century when immigration trends made Newark more notorious in Portugal than in the rest of the United States. With such a high concentration of a certain language, it is in everyone's best interest to make language more accessible to the population. This can look like many things, but one of the most effective ways to achieve true language accessibility is with medical interpreter training.

3 Healthcare Interpreting Trends Across The United States

As immigrant populations continue to climb in the United States, our obligation to expand language accessibility in healthcare increases as well. The Migration Policy Institute found that 22% of the United States population or 65,900,000 people do not speak English. Whether it is due to language barriers or a number of other different reasons, non-citizens are less likely to seek medical attention and therefore more likely to die from potentially treatable injuries, diseases and ailments. What is more, ever since the Coronavirus pandemic started in 2020, patients are no longer allowed to bring family members or non-essential people to their appointments. This means interpreters are allowed, but your cousin bilingual cousin who isn't a certified medical interpreter cannot go to your ultrasound appointment with you. It is now only the doctor, the patient and a medical interpreter who are permitted in the examination room. In this growing industry for bilingual individuals, it is important to evaluate current industry trends before beginning a new career. Here are 3 top healthcare interpreting trends in the United States:

5 Memory Exercises for Online Interpreting Training

Online interpreting training prepares bilingual students for a fulfilling career- whether you purse medical, legal, immigration, community or video remote interpreting training. Knowing which field you want to work is an important first step before registering for class. Highly focused on different subject matter, each course during online interpreter school has its own vocabulary, procedures and syllabus that do not translate into other fields of focus. Medical interpreters have a completely different subject matter from other students who are studying immigration interpreting; which is completely different than those who are pursuing a career in legal interpreting. After successfully completing our 60-hour online medical interpreter course students are prepared to EXCEED exam requirements✅  for official medical interpreter certification. Issued by an accredited entity, official certification is recommended in order to become a distinguished and in-demand interpreter. Students who do not wish to pursue this route can still find employment opportunities- especially for those who seek training hospital employees as medical interpreters- but should expect to earn less than peers who do. Medical interpreting training is a path that can lead bilingual individuals towards a rewarding career, and students must be prepared to put in the work required. Each online interpreting training class operates through remote video conferencing technology ✅ that will help you get more out of your experience than with the self-guided courses our competition offers.

Online Interpreter School: Immigration Vs. Legal Interpreting Classes

Online interpreter school can involve a specialization in any subject- from legal, to medical, to immigration interpreting classes. It can even be as general as specializing in community interpreting, or not selecting a specialty at all. It really all depends on what environments you want to work in and the work you want to accomplish. Do you want to help Limited English Proficient (LEP) individuals seek justice? Or do you see yourself working in hospitals? The key here is playing to your strengths: if you are great at typing, you might be able to find a position in your home state as an interpreter who works as a court stenographer through an online 40-hour court interpreter course. If you are more interested in assisting LEP adults through their court proceedings, becoming a certified immigration interpreter would be better suited for the kind of work you want to accomplish.

Training Hospital Employees In Medical Interpreting In 4 Steps

Training hospital employees in medical interpreting can be a wise, and lucrative decision for hospitals and their employees. While doctors, nurses and those working in specialized medical fields can absolutely benefit from medical interpreter training program, non-medical hospital staff like administrative personnel are the best option for the task. By providing staffed associates with medical interpreter training, hospitals can utilize their services to translate documents for Limited English Proficient (LEP) patients and provide services by interpreting during appointments whenever necessary or requested. While bilingual associates can do this to an extent, 40-hour medical interpreter training online teaches -among other things- essential medical vocabulary, pathology, basic concepts of biomedicine and anatomy & physiology; while practicing core interpreting competency skills like sight translation, consecutive interpreting and simultaneous interpreting that they wouldn't have otherwise received. When employees receive interpreting training, hospitals save thousands of dollars by foregoing translation agencies. While saving valuable time because there is no longer a need to search for an agency- meaning those hours of manpower can be devoted elsewhere. Training hospital employees in medical interpreting means a higher salary, career growth and transferrable skills that they can carry throughout their careers. You might be wondering: "Why don't more leaders start training their hospital employees in medical interpreting if it's such a logical benefit to hospitals, their employees and every LEP patient?"

Becoming Certified In Legal Interpreting Requires 3 Important Skills

Becoming certified in legal interpreting takes a lot of hard work, but offers a rewarding career. Bilingual individuals who can demonstrate fluency in another language (can speak, read, write and understand formal and informal versions of the language) in addition to English, can find meaningful work with online legal interpreter training. While some interpreters may strictly interpret what is spoken- legal interpreters will most likely work as translators as well. In the most simple terms, the main difference between interpretation and translation is that interpreting deals with spoken language in real time and translation focuses on written content. In addition to ensuring verbal and written communication is top notch, communication in courtroom proceedings is understandably more complex than in everyday life. For example, legal language training must include legal terminology, formal and informal registers of speech, as well as dialect and jargon in both English and the translated language. Online legal interpreter training provides the building blocks for the level of confidence that is required in the courtroom to become successful, by equipping students with 3 important interpreting skills:
