Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters (CCHI)
Certified Languages International (CLI)
CCHI is pleased to announce receiving a most generous contribution to our EtoE study of interpreting cognitive skills from Certified Languages International, our long-standing supporter and donor.
Certified Languages International is well known in the interpreting world and many of our certificants and volunteers do business with CLI. CLI provides on-demand interpreting and translation services in 230 languages and counting. Additionally, CLI now offers language assessment services to clients wishing to test their in-house resources, a service that can greatly benefit from the results of CCHI’s EtoE Study.
“We are honored and deeply grateful to receive this gift from the language services company known for its leadership and caring about the interpreting profession. CLI has been CCHI’s supporter since our inception, and, as we celebrating our 10th Anniversary this year, we are delighted to have this opportunity to work together again, says CCHI’s Chair Margarita Bekker. – This revolutionary study is only possible if all stakeholders get involved. We hope more companies and training organizations would join our project as well.”
Kristin Quinlan, CEO of CLI, comments, “Certified Languages International is a firm believer in putting quality first in everything. That’s why we encourage our interpreters to get certified and continue their professional involvement. That’s why we support professional development of interpreters in all forms. This new project by CCHI is a great opportunity to test some assumptions and ideas about the nature of interpreting skills. We look forward to the study results that will help us better qualify interpreters of languages of limited diffusion and ensure we provide to our clients the highest quality of interpreting in any language.”
