SPRINGFIELD, Mass., Aug. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Due to an increasingly diverse U.S. population, medical interpreters are in great demand. Since the State of Mass. passed the Emergency Room Interpreter Bill in 1999, the need for quality medical interpreters has caused hospitals and healthcare institutions to scramble to provide quality medical interpretation services as mandated, and to make sure patients with limited English skills receive quality care. 

TransFluenci EDU offers quality medical interpreter education via certificate courses at eight convenient community college locations, with courses starting in early September. Massachusetts course locations include: Bristol Community College (Fall River/New Bedford), Bunker Hill Community College (Charlestown), Massasoit Community College (Brockton), MassBay Community College (Framingham), North Shore Community College (Lynn),  Northern Essex Community College (Lawrence), Quinsigamond Community College (Worcester) and Springfield Technical Community College (Springfield).

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported in 2012 that employment of interpreters and translators is expected to grow 46 percent by 2022 - much faster than the average for all occupations.

Based in Springfield, Mass., TransFluenci is recognized as a leading translation and interpreter services agency.
