Content from non-profit associations

We are glad to support the work of non-profit associations working towards the improvement of the translation and interpreting field. If you have events or news to share, we will be happy to publish them at no cost.
 
"Professional interpreters result in a significantly lower likelihood of errors of potential consequence than ad hoc and no interpreters.
 
Among professional interpreters, hours of previous training, but not years of experience, are associated with error numbers, types, and consequences.
 
These findings suggest that requiring at least 100 hours of training for interpreters might have a major impact on reducing interpreter errors and their consequences in health care while improving quality and patient safety."
