A-List Communication hire certified interpreters and translators whenever possible. Certified interpreters and translators must undergo rigorous examinations, regularly participate in continuing education programs, and adhere to strict codes of conduct and protocols throughout every assignment. For example:
- The American Translators Association-Certified translator designation is a testament to a translator’s professional competence in translating from one specific language into another. The ATA-certified translator credential can only be attained by passing an ATA examination of translation skills, including comprehension of the source-language text, translation techniques, and target-language writing proficiency.
- Court Certified interpreters are required to pass written and oral exams administered by the Judicial Council of each state in the U.S., to have expertise in the specific terminology and regulations of the legal systems and to have experience in legal proceedings of the courts and other government institutions. These interpreters can also act as medical interpreters.
- Certified medical interpreters are trained in the full spectrum of medical terminology and are familiar with medical regulations and legislation. Medical institutions hire certified medical interpreters to improve safety and ensure effective communication between healthcare providers and patients with limited English proficiency.
