Group gathered around on floor to discuss interpreter certificate program


Qualified spoken or sign language interpreters will gain much-needed knowledge and strategies on how to best interpret for victims of violent crime. The curriculum used has been written by national industry experts and over 20 victim service providers from the Washington, D.C. area. The course has a special focus on domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse. Interpreters will also work on an extensive slang and bad words glossary, because yes, we have to interpret those as well. Other topics discussed include: mental health interpreting, legal and social services interpreting, emergency services and disaster response interpreting.
