Basic requirements - interpreting

Semantix's interpreters must have basic interpreting qualifications and interpret in accordance with good interpreting practice.


Basic requirements

We require you to have a complete on-site interpreter education or that you are an authorised interpreter. We also seek those who are already registered as interpreters with Semantix and who want to be re-activated after a period of absence.

If you send in a notification of your interest and go on to an interview, we request before the interview that you send in:

  • verification of interpreter training or authorisation
  • a CV
  • a photo for an interpreter badge
  • a transcript from the police criminal record

We make an assessment of your suitability during the interview. If you go further after the interview, we also require you to sign a confidentiality agreement and a vendor agreement with Semantix

Once we have received all of the information we require and we have approved you, you will be registered with Semantix.
