    YOUR ROLE AS AN INTERPRETER

    • Priority 1: Facilitate communication between patient and provider

      • If you don’t understand something on either side, ask to repeat or clarify.

      • If a provider asks a question that seems inappropriate and you are uncomfortable translating, don’t be afraid to ask them if it could be worded differently

      • If you are unsure of how to best translate a sentence or idea, don’t be afraid to ask questions and use workarounds.

      • Try to avoid summarizing.

      • Remember, the goal is to make sure that the provider and patient understand one another. If you are uncomfortable during a particular conversation, ask to be excused and seek help from the coordinator.

    YOUR ROLE AS AN INTERPRETER

    • “Fly on the wall”

      • Speak in first person

      • Maintain integrity of ideas expressed by patient and provider.

      • Make sure that your efforts enhance the provider/patient relationship; be sensitive to the fact that you will often be the only person in the room that understands all sides of the conversation.

      • Confidentiality! Always be sure that the patient can trust you.

      • Stick with the same patient throughout the visit.

  • Patient advocate

    • You will often be the only person who sees the patient all the way through. This will give you a unique insight on what the visit is like for a patient.

    YOUR ROLE AS AN INTERPRETER

    • Continue to improve your language skills!

      • The better your vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation are, the more effective you will be as an interpreter.

      • Everyone has to get creative at times when they don’t know how to say something, but use this as a learning opportunity.

      • Dictionaries, medical Spanish books, and your fellow interpreters (particularly the native speakers) will be valuable resources.

      • Work on speaking clearly and loudly.

    DEALING WITH OTHER SPANISH SPEAKERS

    • Family interpreters

      • Use your judgment

      • Conflict of interests

      • Stay in the room

  • “Bilingual” Providers

    • You may allow providers to speak as much as they can

    • Begin to interpret when you sense there is a possible misunderstanding or if the flow of the interview is greatly interrupted.

    • This can also apply to patients who speak some English. Ask them if they want you there. Even if they speak English, they may still feel more comfortable speaking in Spanish.
