General Interpreter Assessment
The Tennessee Language Center provides general exams for consecutive interpretation skills via ALTA Language Services. This exam requires the candidate to perform a consecutive interpretation between two speakers over the phone and is scored on linguistic components as well as overall accuracy according to ALTA’s protocol. As total fluency in the language pair is a basic requirement for interpretation, ALTA recommends first screening candidates in their non-native language using the Spoken (Oral) Proficiency Test. To schedule an exam, please contact us at cipd@Tennessee.edu.
