The Interprefy Interpreter Training journey certification

Interprefy ensures each client‘s experience by providing highly qualified conference interpreters from across the globe. These interpreters know the ins and outs of the Interprefy RSI platform. No interpreter joins a session without having undergone extensive interpreter platform training and testing, and ongoing refreshers are provided for interpreters. Our team monitors interpreter’s performance in session and re-evaluates their performance after each client session in order to guarantee unparallelled professional service.

Three Steps To Certification

Step 1: Evaluation by our language service partners

Our language service partners review all incoming interpreter inquiries and conduct in-depth interviews, ensuring that all requirements are met to provide world-class service. Interpreters are expected to have a degree in conference interpretation, substantial work experience in that field, and meet our rigorous expectations for their computer, audio, microphone, and internet specifications.

Step 2: 2-hour online one-on-one training session

The Interprefy in-house training department schedules a three-part online training for new interpreters. Upon successful completion, interpreters are RSI approved, allowing them to work on the platform for the following three months:

  1. Technical setup: We verify that interpreter‘s hardware and software meet all standard requirements and are set-up for a smooth performance. Interpreters receive a checklist beforehand, but all settings are double-checked in this stage. 
  1. Getting up to speed with Interprefy: Interpreters receive an explanation of all components, features and functions of the Interprefy platform. Interpreters learn how to set up relay languages, perform hand-overs, and follow emergency protocol.
  1. Practice training: In this simulation, the trainer acts as the interpreting partner to the interpreter trainee and practices the procedures learned in part two.

Step 3: Performance evaluation & certification

During the first 6-months of working with Interprefy, the interpreter‘s performance is assessed during client sessions by our rigorous rating system. Interpreters with a high rating receive a 1-hour refresher after 3 months of inactivity. This training updates the interpreter on new developments to the Interprefy Platorm and addresses reports from their in-session experience.

After the refresher interpreters are certified to work on the Interprefy platform for the following three months. Performance continues to be monitored and certification re-evaluated during these next three months. Interpreters that receive a lower rating will be asked to go back to step 3 and conduct another 2-hour training.
