Our Arabic and Mandarin translators
VICCIR relies heavily on its translators. When a counsellor does not speak the language of the client, one of our translators assists, translating to the client what the counsellor says, and translating to the counsellor what the client says. Our translators remain in a state of neutrality, not expressing opinions or emotions in their work.
Like our counsellors, the VICCIR translators currently work as volunteers. They are dedicated to helping those who share their language and frequently their culture. They have been trained to work with counsellors, and following each session, they have opportunity for debriefing and consultation. VICCIR appreciates them – very much.
Please feel free to contact us, we are here to help. We maintain offices in Victoria and in Duncan.
