Additional information about the survey

Survey Icon The National Consortium of Interpreter Education Centers (NCIEC) has established a National Trilingual Interpreting Task Force to further the trilingual interpreting profession. The overall goal of the Task Force on Trilingual Interpreting is to increase the number of qualified interpreters able to interpret between English, American Sign Language (ASL) and Spanish by enhancing leadership, determine effective practices around trilingual interpreting, and providing educational opportunities and related resources. A critical component is the identification of the competencies and skills needed to successfully interpret in trilingual settings. one method for doing this identification is through conducting surveys.
