INTERPRETER CERTIFICATION OVERVIEW

What is the Interpreter Certification?

Interpreter certification is an online course for interpreters and translators to earn their certificate to officially interpret or translate for companies of all sizes in the United States.

With 28 hours of curriculum, graduates of the interpreter certification course will be versed in the interpreting practices of simultaneous, consecutive and sight translation.

Each module contains fundamentals, real-world scenarios, exercises and review.  Interpreter classes will be focused on the fundamental styles as well as popular industries in interpreting including medical interpreting, court interpreting and IEP interpreting for educators and school districts.  

What are the benefits of being a certified interpreter or translator?

 

 Many interpreters that join our certification course are already interpreting and translating in their everyday lives.  In fact, they become so relied on that they become the in-house interpreter that is also a teacher or clerk or secretary.  

 They want to learn the fundamentals and are willing to improve their skills to serve the people that are dependent on them.  That is always noble and these students receive great value from this interpreter course.  

 Other bilingual interpreter students have researched careers based on their skills and have found a fulfilling career in interpreting.  

 These students become certified interpreters and translators and gain a new set of skills and confidence that will qualify them for the position they seek or the promotion at work.  

Others find success in contracting as an interpreter.  Doing job based or project based work is a great way to earn income and stay flexible in your schedule. 

In fact, Arizona Language Center is hiring interpreters all of the time and we often hire our own students  as contractors while they build their own business.  

 

Will I be a certified translator as well as a certified interpreter? 

 
Yes!  You will be a certified interpreter and a certified translator.  This course will teach you the fundamentals of interpreting language as well as different interpreting styles such as simultaneous, consecutive and sight translation or translating text. 

 This interpreter certification is an important step if you plan on a career specifically in medical or court or IEP.  If you are interested in a more specific course, please let us know.  IF we have 3 or more students also interested, we can start a industry specific interpreter course that will give almost twice the materials in your specific industry than the general interpreter certification.
