Our Team

LWS is highly selective when vetting interpreters.
Only 20% of potential contract OPI interpreters are accepted.



LWS OPI Interpreters must meet the following criteria:

  • Have prior interpreting experience.
  • Pass a 3rd party oral assessment of interpretation skills and language proficiency.
  • Pass a “mock” interpretation session.
  • Demonstrate proficiency with the online call management and interpreting tools

 

In addition, quality checks are performed twice a year by reviewing actual interpreting sessions conducted by interpreters.

For background checks, over-the-phone interpreters are screened by a third-party security agency, which scans the nation-wide criminal records, sex offender files, and the Patriot Act/Homeland Security Database then provides a complete report on every interpreter.
