Have you ever wondered, if your “bilingual employee, staff interpreter” speaks, understands and is actually interpreting or saying everything you say “word for word”?
“Just because you speak a second language , it doesn’t make you a Professional Interpreter”
I guess that’s the million dollar question, that many of you are asking yourselves now? 🤔😊
Many employers think that using a “Bilingual” staff member in their business is going to SAVE them $$…but let me tell you that is so far from the TRUTH!
A Bilingual person maybe able to help you and your customers communicate basic things…”How’s your day, what are you doing, what do you have plan, what are your tasks, basic things”…
However, if your conduction an employee evaluation, employee meeting, benefits meetings, client/attorney meeting, medical evaluation, etc you will need the services of a Professional AND Experienced Interpreter.
Many companies, employers, businesses think that just because a person is “bilingual”, they are competent to provide Professional Interpreting services?
That is so NOT TRUE! Don’t put your Business at Risk (to SAVE MONEY) in the long run it will end up costing you 1000s of dollars, if you don’t hire/contract an experienced professional.
In order to be a Professional Interpreter, NOT ONLY do you need to be Fluent in both the Source language but also the Target language, but more importantly you need to know:
- What it takes; Basic Interpreting Skills
- What to do; Roles and Functions
- And your Responsibilities
- And so much more; Ethics, Standards and Protocols, etc
That is why I’ve made it my Mission since the inception of my Business to be the difference…
I am different because I Love What I Do, I take pride in What I offer, but more importantly I want to Help Break the Language Barrier in Communication and provide Top-Notch services (the way my daddy taught me!)
