Access Academy – Training for Interpreters & Translators
How Interpretation is Better with the Access Academy
A2I maintains a separate education department called the Access Academy. The Access Academy is solely focused on the training and education of all interpreters and translators who subcontract with us. The curriculum for interpreters consists of training in interpreter ethics, skills, medical, legal, and social services terminology. In addition, translators must successfully complete training in translator skills and protocols.
This training allows A2I to ensure you are receiving the best Interpretation and Translation services possible. We understand how critical these services can be to your business, which is why we uphold the highest training standards of any Ohio Interpretation and Translation company. We also offer Training Seminars for clients using our Interpretation Services.
