Certifications and Qualifications for Medical Interpreting
When clients contact us to provide "Medical Certified Interpreters", for medical related proceedings, there is often confusion as to what this actually means. The term "Medical Certified" refers to a specific designation that interpreters receive by completing course work and then by passing challenging verbal and written tests.
It is interesting to note that these designations are not uniform throughout the United States. Each state has its own designations, and most have none at all. The great majority of the states do not have an official "Medical Certified designation". Instead they use the "Professionally Qualified" designation. This status takes into account an interpreter's practical experience and educational background. There are no official tests for this designation.
