Does your company get regular, or perhaps infrequent, calls requesting interpreting services? Have you been interested in expanding your service portfolio to include interpreting, but aren’t sure if it makes sense? Are you simply interested in learning more about the world of spoken language services so you can refer clients to trusted partners who do provide interpreting? InterpretAmerica’s Katharine Allen embarks on a detailed voyage through the world of interpreting.
Katharine Allen is co-President of InterpretAmerica, an organization dedicated to raising the profile of the interpreting industry, which hosts the annual InterpretAmerica Summit. She trains interpreters and interpreter trainers, provides curriculum design, and language access consulting to hospitals. Clients have included Kaiser Permanente, the Department of Defense, Glendon College of Translation and the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey (MIIS). Katharine holds a Masters in Translation and Interpretation from MIIS.
