A great deal of work is being done on major quality improvements with regard to the deployment of interpreting services within the government. As a result, the registration conditions for interpreters in the Rbtv change in a number of ways. In the updated Rbtv, interpreters can also be registered at B2 level.
The registration policy at the Bureau Wbtv changes in a number of ways:
- The renewed Rbtv can also register interpreters who speak the languages at B2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEF).
- Work experience remains relevant for demonstrating the legal competencies, but will not be a separate registration condition.
- In the area of interpreting skills and attitude, the emphasis will be on the test that shows the final level has been achieved.
Are you an interpreter and do you want to request a quick scan? Then you must fill in and sign the quick scan application form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. You’ll also need to send supporting documents that show you:
- have a command of the source language at (at least) B2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEF);
- have a command of the target language at (at least) B2 level of the CEF;
- have successfully completed an interpretation test.
Examples are diplomas and certificates and a statement from your client about your working and thinking level that demonstrates your language level.
You can read more about the quick scan in the Bureau Wbtv newsletter. If you have questions about the quick scan, please contact the Bureau Wbtv via email@example.com or 088 – 787 1920 (from Monday to Friday between 9 am and 1 pm). They are happy to help you.
