We offer many exciting options to upgrade the standard of interpretation currently being provided by your organization.
CURRENT STAFF EVALUATIONS:
This is the first step towards taking charge of the quality of interpretation currently being done at your organization. One of our professional instructors and certified interpreters will ‘shadow’ your Bilingual and Interpreter staff, grade their performance and turn in a full report on professionalism, service and skill. This evaluation we believe is essential in order to bring perspective on your current program, and to aim for an overall better standard.
