MCIS is currently developing a unique language independent training program for translators in languages of lesser diffusion with funding from the
Ontario Trillium Foundation.
This training is being developed to help address the shortage of professional translators in languages of high demand in Ontario. This shortage is affecting access to critical information and services for limited/non-English speaking persons in key areas such as health care, emergency services, legal access, education, social services and many more.
MCIS’ Translator Training will increase the prosperity of linguistically diverse Ontarians by building the skills and knowledge to become professional translators. The training will offer equal access to translation training opportunities to speakers of all languages as well as build community capacity to provide qualified translations in all languages to meet both local and global needs.
