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."
