INTERPRETER TRAINING

At Linguava interpreters we understand the importance of continual language’s skill training for our interpreters to provide a more accurate and complete interpretation service for our clients. Linguava offers formal training sessions where we have realistic role-plays and lively discussions allowing the interpreters to enhance their skills and learn directly from the experiences of other interpreters. This provides the interpreters with the opportunity to ask questions and have in-depth discussions regarding any issues they may experience in the field. The training sessions are directed by an industrys veteran certified interpreter.

“As a new member of the Linguava team, I can say that the training sessions that Linguava held this year were extremely helpful for me in my role as an onsite and telephonic interpreter. The knowledge I gained from the speakers was very valuable and helpful. The training helps all of the interpreters stay connected and familiar with each other, because we get to share stories and situations that tend to happen during appointments.”
