What is the time commitment for an interpreter?
Our interpreters come into the office on an “as-needed” basis. Interpreters are expected to be available for at least four hours a week and be able to commit to interpreting with us for a minimum of three months. Interpreters also often help to translate clients’ documents into English.
If you are interested in assisting us with interpretation, possess the language skills but have little or no prior experience, we are still interested in hearing from you. We will provide training. Please contact us for more information.
