Shanghai interpretation school bounds into world top 15
A professional interpretation program launched by Shanghai International Studies University (SISU) has been certified by the international interpretation authority, said SISU sources Wednesday.
The program, launched by the Graduate Institute of Interpretation and Translation (GIIT) of the university, has just been certified by International Association of Conference Interpreters (AIIC), said Dai Huiping, vice president with SISU.
"Our program is qualified for the standards set by AIIC", said Dai. "The experts from AIIC are very impressed by our advanced equipment and excellent faculty."
AIIC appraises the training organizations providing professional interpretation courses across the world at an interval of three years. Its appraisal is considered the world's highest level in the field of simultaneous interpretation.
