Certification establishes minimum competency standards required in certain sectors of the language industry. It not only assures that a language professional has completed all eligibility criteria and requirements to earn a specific credential in the state but that he or she possesses bilingual proficiency, cultural understanding, theoretical knowledge, and skill set needed for the job.
TLP clients are encouraged to request, at any time, proof of certification from any of the professionals we work with. For clients who are not familiar with the minimum state qualification requirements for a specific language or proceeding, TLP will assist them in choosing the right interpreter for their particular assignment.
