NCIEC Survey of interpreter practitioners

Dear Interpreter,

I am writing to invite your participation in a survey of interpreting practitioners.

The National Consortium of Interpreter Education Centers (NCIEC) is conducting this survey as part of our on-going series of needs assessments intended to identify noteworthy trends in the field.

Your participation in this survey will not only help determine decisions about the use of resources for the remainder of the grant cycle, but will help guide the next cycle of grant funding. Having data from your program in this survey is extremely important.

We realize this is a busy time of the year, but the survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete. Please use this link to open the survey:


Please note that there are currently two surveys in circulation, one for interpreting practitioners and one for interpreting education program administrators. If you have both roles, please complete both surveys. But please, fill out the surveys only once.

Note that if you wish to opt out, the opportunity to do so is on the first page of the survey.

Thank you in advance for your participation.

If you have any questions, please contact nciec@interpretereducation.org.
