Qualifications & Skills
Because Globelink uses employees instead of independent consultants, we are able to provide the highest quality interpreting services according to industry standards. Our employees are covered under our Errors and Omissions Insurance (E&O), and all interpreters are assessed in their linguistic skills prior to being trained and working in the field. All interpreters go through the necessary training for general, medical, and even legal fields. In particular, all of our medical interpreters are required to take a rigorous 40-hour, nationally-recognized, medical interpreting training workshop. We encourage our employees to focus on continuing education and obtaining certifications in the interpreting field, and offer an on-site library and language lab with all the necessary resources for interpreter growth.
The expertise of Globelink is multi-level and varied. All of our instructors are highly experienced, native or near-native speakers or have in-country experience, and several of them are accredited teachers. Each Globelink Language teacher brings a unique, individual flavor to every language course offered.
