Code of Ethics

Language interpreters are bound by national standards specifying minimum qualification requirements as well as industry codes of ethics. Users of interpreting services such as hospitals, courts, and social service agencies rely on these guidelines for screening and hiring interpreters. Global Interpreting also uses these guidelines as a standard set of criteria for evaluating the quality of staff and contract interpreters.

Each interpreter is provided with a Code of Ethics that defines our commitment to ethical interpretation and confidentiality standards. A signed copy of the Code of Ethics and an in-depth discussion of the Interpreter Code of Ethics is an integral part of the orientation required of our staff before they begin accepting assignments.
