MCIS Language Solutions is a non-profit social enterprise providing language interpretation, translation, transcription, skills testing and training services to approximately 750 clients spanning Canada. We are committed to our vision of connecting people globally through language.

As a freelance interpreter on the MCIS roster, you will be required to interpret (perform spoken translation) in community settings (such as hospitals, the police, tribunal hearings, schools, etc.) between the English and the target language.

We are currently recruiting interpreters in the London, ON region.

Candidates must be fluent in English and one of the languages found below:

If you speak a language that is not listed above, feel free to also apply.

Reading proficiency is necessary as candidates may be asked to read and orally translate short readings, such as application forms.

Candidates must also be willing to travel either by car or public transportation (or any other means) to the location of the assignments. A number of over-the-phone or video assignments are also available, which can be completed from home.

If this is your first time doing interpretation, we have a short online training orientation, called INT101 which is accessible online.

Formally trained and language tested interpreters are welcome to apply.
