Herts Interpreting and Translation Service (HITS) provides language support services to NHS Trusts, local authorities, criminal justice agencies, voluntary sector organisations and commercial and private clients throughout Herts, Beds, Bucks, Oxon, Milton Keynes and beyond.
We offer a number of training courses for organisations wishing to enhance the skills for their
bi-lingual staff or community interpreters and individuals looking to train as an interpreter and
gain a professional qualification.
We currently deliver the following courses...
As a registered training and examination centre for the Chartered Institute of Linguists, HITS trains its interpreters to the standard of the Level 6 Diploma in Public Service Interpreting. This means that HITS interpreters are fluent and literate in both target languages, conversant with the terminology across a wide range of public services and committed to the ethics of public service interpreting, such as impartiality and confidentiality. We currently offer more than 90 languages and dialects including communication support services for deaf people.
