In-House Interpreting

This is a 2-credit-hour internship (~125 hour time commitment) that can be completed almost entirely remotely. In-House Interpreting is a remote medical interpreting company in Utah that also offers the standard medical interpreter training program: Bridging the Gap. An internship with In-House Interpreting consists of:

  1. Bridging the Gap training course (40 hours)
  2. Group training (~10 hours)
  3. On-the-job remote medical interpreting while being observed by a mentor (75 hours)
  4. Various assessments, including an exam to receive a Remote Medical Interpreting (RMI) certificate* of completion and the exam to receive the Bridging The Gap certificate*

The training program is offered to students during specific parts of the year at no cost, availability permitting. See this In-House Interpreting webpage for more information, and fill out the form at the bottom of the webpage to request availability.

Upon completion of this internship*, students will be highly trained medical interpreters with much more than the necessary qualifications to work in Utah and with the necessary qualifications to contract as a remote medical interpreter for most any agency in the country, including In-House Interpreting. The training received in this internship is also enough for any student to be ready to test for national medical interpreter certification.

*Note that certificates will not be given to students unless they finish the 75 hours of on-the-job training. Alternatively, students who do not wish to finish the 75 hours of on-the-job practical training can pay the normal fee for the Bridging The Gap course ($600 as of October 2022) to obtain their certificate

U.S. Translation Company

This is a 3-credit-hour internship (180 hour + time commitment) that must be completed in-person at U.S. Translation Company's headquarters in downtown Salt Lake City. The company will provide a $500 stipend upon successful completion of the internship.

U.S. Translation Company is one of the area’s largest language service providers and works with translation, localization, and conference interpreting projects.

Interns will have the opportunity to work in all of the different departments in the company (project management, vendor management, localization engineering, remote conference interpreting, sales, etc.) so that they can explore the many different facets of the language services industry. An offer of employment with U.S. Translation Company is also a likely result of this internship.
