Interpreting and Translation Services

By offering interpreting and translation services, it is our goal to put English speakers and non-English speakers on even footing.

The Multi-Cultural Center's Interpreting Services offers:

  • Legal, Government, Medical, and Social settings.
  • 24/7 service available.
  • Document translations, such as birth certificates, death certificates, marriage licenses, transcripts, diplomas, and more!

Our interpreters participate in orientation and Code of Ethics sessions. A Code of Conduct for interpreters in South Dakota judiciary Rule 13-05 was ordered and adapted in February 2013. This Code of Conduct applies to all our interpreters.

  • Accuracy and Completeness: The ethical responsibility of the interpreter to interpret accurately and completely without altering, omitting, or adding anything to the meaning of what is said.
  • Representation of Qualification: It is essential that interpreters present a complete and truthful account of their training, certifications, and experience prior to appointments.
  • Impartiality and Avoidance of Conflict of Interest: Interpreters should avoid any behavior that presents the appearance of favoritism toward anyone.
  • Professional Demeanor: Interpreters should know and observe the established protocol, rules, and procedures for delivering interpreting services.
  • Confidentiality: Interpreters must protect and uphold the confidentiality of all privileged information obtained during the course of their duties.
  • Restriction of Public Comment: Interpreters should not discuss their assignments with anyone other than persons who have a formal duty associated with the case.

Our interpreters and translators receive training in professional development, dynamics of cross-cultural communication, different modes of interpreting (simultaneous, consecutive, and sight translation), medical terminology and practice, and legal/court terminology and practice.
