Korean Government Produces Professional Medical Interpreters
If this interpreter testing process is formally established, it’ll be Korea’s second interpreter license exam run by a government entity. As of today, the only government-issued interpreter license in Korea is for a tour guide/interpreter who is required to pass written/oral language exams as well as a basic Korean history exam.
Since the State of California indefinitely suspended its medical interpreter program, this certainly is a hopeful change for Koreans who are interested in medical interpreting.
