Qualified interpreter assessment

Once you have met the formal requirements for membership, you will be required to attend an online interview. Dates are organised around the availability of the assessors. 

Prior to the interview you will need to provide details of three interpreting assignments that you have completed. These will form the basis of discussion for part of the interview.

Questions during the interview will enable you to demonstrate your professionalism, how you deal with issues that an interpreter may face and your understanding of how to adhere to the ITI Code of Professional Conduct in your daily practice. 

The interview is held online. You must therefore have access to a computer with a reliable Internet connection, webcam and headset with a microphone.

The MITI Applicant Handbook provides a detailed guide to the interpreting interview assessment process.

Please note:
Being a UK Institute, the interviews are carried out in English and applicants must be able to communicate effectively in English in order to converse with the assessors proficiently throughout the interview. This level of membership is not suitable for those without a good command of the English language.  

The interviews are carried out via Zoom. You must ensure that you are able to install the Zoom software before applying as no alternative is available. If you haven’t already used this software we may ask you to carry out a test session. 

 All assessors are Qualified MITI Interpreter Members.
