Case Study: Afghan Interprteters
The military client had a strict requirement for all interpreters working in their environment to have their language ability tested. The assessment was required to grade interpreter speaking, reading, writing, listening and interpreting skills to ensure compliance with nationally recognised standards.
ISL created a custom language proficiency test to equip interpreters to use and comprehend correct military terminology.
Role play situations and scenarios were integrated with the testing to prepare interpreters for the working environment.
A grading mechanism was implemented by ISL which aligned to the guidelines used by the military.
Tested interpreters were able to deliver a high standard of interpreting services in very extreme conditions.
