ASSESSMENT

The ability to communicate effectively in a second language is a fundamental requirement for any interpreter. We understand that your organization needs to be able to identify qualified interpreters to avoid spending valuable resources repeatedly hiring and training individuals who may not meet the minimum national standards. Aha! Interpreting Solutions provides a quick but thorough evaluation of your candidate’s language performance, a resource that your business may not have available in-house.

The assessment focuses on the second language listening comprehension and verbal skill levels of an interpreter in their working language. We assess the following listening skill sets:

Verbal

  • Using appropriate sentence and word assembly

  • Reiterating concepts and directions

  • Paraphrasing content

  • Utilizing educationally and culturally appropriate language levels

  • Interpreting as a rapid and automatic response

Listening

  • Recalling sentences in content

  • Listening to paragraphs

  • Memorizing for recall

  • Analyzing conversations for meaning

  • Understanding medical terminology

Upon completion of the assessment, a customized analysis is generated for each candidate. The analysis will provide a numerical score for listening comprehension and verbal skill sets, as well as an overall rating of the candidate’s ability to communicate within a specific business setting.

We adhere to the highest industry standards established by organizations, such as the National Council on Interpreting in Health Care (NCIHC), the California Healthcare Interpreting Association (CHIA), the International Medical Interpreter Association (IMIA), as well as the National Board of Certification for Medical Interpreters (NBCMI), as well as all educational and legal state standards for interpreting.
