Development of a curriculum for medical interpreters
Start date: Dec 1, 2007,

Responding to an identified lack of trained interpreters working in the health and medical sector and an increased reliance upon lay interpreters provided by patients, partners from 4 European countries exchanged knowledge and experience and worked together to develop a common curriculum and training materials aimed at professional medical interpreters. With an increasing number of in-migrants settling in new European countries, the project aimed not only to provide increased and enhanced intepretation services but to also raise awareness amongst service providers of the need for such dedicated service provision. In addition to forming an end beneficiary group for the project, settled migrants were also seen as potential training beneficiaries thus improving their chances to enter the labour market in their new country.
