The Use of Translators/Interpreters in Rehabilitation
Journal of Rehabilitation
Rehabilitation workers should consider hiring translators and interpreters, given the continuous increase in the number of non-English speaking individuals seeking their services. Translators and intepreters should be both bilingual and bicultural, so clients can be served in the language and culture of their preference. They also need to be trained and supervised by rehabilitation professionals who themselves are bilingual and bicultural on a continuous basis.
