To put it simply, THE COMMUNITY INTERPRETER® International Edition is the only national training program in the U.S. for community interpreters. It is a program of the highest caliber, always up to date and based on the highest quality content and finest pedagogy in the field. It is designed to be delivered as either a 40- to 60-hour certificate program. It has also been adapted for longer programs by colleges and universities.


THE COMMUNITY INTERPRETER® can be given as a medical interpreting program or geared for educational, social services or general community interpreting, as needed. That flexibility is unique.


Developed by Cross-Cultural Communications (CCC), THE COMMUNITY INTERPRETER® has licensed trainers in 35 U.S. states, Washington, DC, Guam and six other countries. The program is constantly expanding. We offer:

• An entry-level 40- to 60-hour certificate program of the finest quality

• A respected name and credential

• Train-the-trainer programs

• Licensing for agencies and trainers to deliver the program

• Train-the-trainer programs for an add-on one-day workshop in medical terminology
