Information for Working with Interpreters
Updated On: Sep 03, 2014

Interpreter At Work

Are you looking to hire an interpreter for an event?

Interpreters are not helpers, they are professionals providing language access services.


When we are interpreting for a doctor and a patient, or for a social worker and a client we aren’t helping. We are providing a service, a helpful service.  We aren’t doing anyone a favor when we are working.  Interpreters are professionals that have been called on to do a job - a very specific job. 

US Dept. of Labor - Bureau of Labor Statistics http://www.bls.gov/ooh/media-and-communication/interpreters-and-translators.htm#tab-1

Many of our members work outside of the social and medical interpreting fields as well.  Please contact us at local1671@gmail.com

Wondering what value language interpreters add?

In addition to numerous studies documenting the critical role interpreters play in ensuring patient safety, the Association Internationale d’Interprètes de Conference (AIIC) has a cartoon video up on youtube about the 'added value' of interpreting.
