UNO adds certificate program in translation, interpreting.

Byline: CityBusiness staff reports

The University of New Orleans has added a certificate program in Spanish/English translation and interpreting for students and professionals in the legal and health care industries.

A news release said the non-degree program is the only combined legal and health care translation and interpreting certificate program in the state.

Lisbeth Philip, assistant professor of Spanish and coordinator of the program, said there is a growing demand for translators and interpreters in those fields as well as social services.

"Our program aims to meet this demand by providing proficient bilingual individuals with the skills they need to become professional legal or healthcare translators and interpreters," she said in a statement.

Anyone proficient in Spanish and English who has a high school diploma or GED qualifies for admission, the news release said. Translation courses will be taught online, and interpreting courses will be at UNO on Saturdays.
