Manage all your language needs in one place.
When you choose us to conduct language assessments and testing, you’re guaranteed an individualized approach and exceptional customer service. And if you’re taking advantage of our other services, you’ll have the unique opportunity to manage your entire language access plan through one vendor.
Every client’s needs are different. That’s why we offer three assessment packages. All packages provide customized reports of those being vetted. Each report includes the final ranking received on the language skills and interpreting ability scales, along with a brief description of the candidate. We encourage you to use these reports for Joint Commission surveyor visits, and for language assessment planning and implementation.
Package I – Language Proficiency: Tests proficiency for any employee who will be communicating in a native language.
Package II – Basic Consecutive Interpreting: Tests a dual-role employee’s ability to provide basic interpretation between English and a foreign language.
Package III – Advanced Consecutive Interpreting: Tests a staff interpreter’s ability to provide mid-to-high level interpretation between English and a foreign language.
If you are unsure which to choose we’ll be happy to help you to determine the package that’s most appropriate for your business needs and budget requirements.
