» Hiring an Interpreter


What sets Language Services Hawaii (LSH) apart from other multi-language companies, besides the languages we offer, is our emphasis on quality and training.  While other companies may hire “bilinguals,” LSH carefully examines each person for language, interpreting skills, training, educational background, and knowledge of interpreter ethics. LSH emphasizes the importance of training in consecutive and simultaneous interpreting skills (notetaking, concentration, etc.), ethics and professionalism to ensure good performance linguistically, professionally, and ethically. You will find many of our contracted interpreters having attended classes in interpreting, such as those offered at the Center for Interpretation & Translation Studies at the University of Hawaii (e.g. Court/Community/Medical Interpreting, Skills of Interpreting) and/or have participated in professional interpretation workshops.  Our interpreters include various languages and backgrounds, including those with professional nursing and other degrees, extensive medical knowledge, court interpreting and conference interpreting experience.  Interpreters attend forums and workshops to improve research skills, note-taking skills, or just to build glossaries, such as for Micronesian languages.  We emphasize continual education and are the only company in Hawaii who has Nationally Certified Medical Interpreters and Certified Court interpreters on their roster. We try to find an interpreter specifically catered to fit each assignment.
