Professional Interpreters Are In High Demand:

In recent years has become incredibly common to utilize the various language services provided by professional interpreters in many aspects of life. The language service industry has developed various  language solutions that greatly aid in breaking down language barriers and facilitating communication between individuals who do not speak the same language. The demand for professional interpreters has grown exponentially due to the linguistic diversity within American communities. Interpreters work in various industries and are trained and experienced in specific subject matters. The following is a breakdown of the different types of professional interpreters available to aid you in breaking down the language barriers you face in your interactions with limited English proficient (LEP) individuals. 

Medical Interpreters:

When LEP individuals go to the hospital or any healthcare facility, it’s important that a medical interpreter is  provided in order to accurately facilitate any informational exchange. Medical interpreters must  be highly trained, knowledgeable, skilled and experienced in order to ensure the interpretation is completed with accuracy and precision. It is imperative that Professional medical interpreters are  exact, clear and do not, in any way, deviate from the original meaning. Having a thorough understanding of the facts and information at hand allows LEP patients to make sound decisions regarding their health as well as the treatment they receive.

Legal Interpreters:

Straightforward, precise and accurate communication is required in order to conduct legal proceedings. If details, testimonies, and/or eyewitness accounts cannot be understood or properly communicated, there is no way to ensure justice is being served. Legal interpreters are trained to overcome challenges, obstacles, ethical dilemmas, and to take cultural differences into account. Legal interpreters must maintain a high ethical standard in order to remain  neutral and to avoid intervening in a situation and potentially muddying the intended message. Utilizing professional legal interpreters guarantees effective communication, clear understanding and provides the assurance that language barriers will not stand in the way of justice. Legal interpreters aid in ensuring fairness and the basic right to voice your opinion regardless of the language you speak; they also promote the integrity and accuracy of our judicial system.

Sign Language Interpreters:

In the same manner as medical and legal interpreters, professional sign language interpreters develop their interpreting skills through extensive training and practice. Sign language interpreters facilitate communication between signed and spoken languages. Facial expressions, body language and lip movements are all integral parts of an interpretation. Sign language interpreters often use finger spelling for jargon or industry-specific words but the interpreter must be able to sign anything without hesitation. Sign language interpreters greatly aid in breaking down the language barriers and discrimination faced by the Deaf community. This grants deaf individuals access to mainstream American services such as medical care and legal services.
