Education and quality
Once an interpreter registers with us, we offer them an introductory programme to tell them about our code of conduct and standards of integrity and quality endorsed by HearHear. This introductory programme means we can ensure that the interpreter is able to provide the interpreting service in a pleasant, professional, and high-quality manner.
But HearHear provides more than just an introduction. Alongside our own e-learning environment to instruct and train interpreters for a specific assignment, we offer training programmes for interpreters in collaboration with the educational institute of the Association of SIGV Court Interpreters and Legal Translators (SIGV). Our Interpreter Coaches also conduct peer-review sessions with the interpreters we deploy.
Our ISO 18841 Interpreting Services certificate is proof that we offer this accepted standard of interpreting services — but we aim to surpass this level. The quality management department of our parent company WCS Group (with its own ISO 9001 certificate) also plays an important role in ensuring the best possible user systems, processes, and quality-focused management.
HearHear would like to be a valuable partner for you, which goes beyond simply providing the right interpreter for the job. We are committed to providing a personal, expert approach to interpreting and can take care of the entire interpreting assignment from beginning to end – whatever suits your needs.
We also want to be a valuable partner for our interpreters. That’s why we provide proper support for each assignment, training in collaboration with the Association of SIGV Court Interpreters and Legal Translators, and own e-learning environment. We also use Interpreter Coaches to provide peer reviews. But, above all, we know all of ‘our’ interpreters personally and actively involve them in developing our services, technologies, and innovations.
Being a valuable partner for interpreters means offering value to society. After all, a high-quality interpreting service leads to better understanding between people, which in turn helps to improve our society. That’s also why HearHear operates with a longer-term view. We work with our partner Werkreturn (an organization specializing in social return and participation) to deploy people who are disadvantages on the job market, so as to achieve a social return on investment (SROI). Everything we do is based on our desire to improve our work each day.
