In many states, up to half of the population speaks a first language other than English. This phenomenon drives up the need for bilingual workers in many fields.

The need is no greater than in health care and other federally funded programs, where organizations can save tremendous amounts of resources by appropriately using assessed bilingual staff as well as trained and assessed interpreters to reduce readmissions and legal risks, improve compliance from patients, and increase overall patient satisfaction.

At MasterWord we take the quality of our language proficiency and interpreter assessments very seriously, a trait that our partners have come to depend on. The first step is to determine which assessment best meets your needs:

Language Proficiency

This assessment tests an individual’s ability to communicate in a language other than English.  This assessment is recommended for individuals who will communicate directly with non-English speakers in that language.

Interpreter Assessment

This assessment tests an individual’s ability to meet the standard to be qualified as a medical interpreter with sufficient skill and understanding of professional standards of conduct.  This assessment is recommended for individuals who will be used to facilitate communication between two or more parties without participating in the conversation themselves.
