About Us

All across the globe the demand for foreign language interpreters is growing daily. Training those interpreters is in increased demand and companies want interpreters with great, formal training. A basic, introductory class just doesn’t suffice anymore. Interpreters need more than conversational fluency in a second language. The global economy of today needs interpreters who understand interpreting nuance, specific rules and laws that apply to each different segment , and interpreters who are culturally trained. Ethics and confidentiality have always been a must. Global 1 Voice takes training to the next level.

Global 1 Voice was created to provide access to professional training and testing for interpreters and bilingual employees who are used as interpreters in professional, medical, legal and business offices. At Global 1 Voice, we believe that as the number of Limited English Proficiency (LEP) patients and clients continues to grow, the demand for competent interpreting services will increase. In turn, this creates a demand for trained interpreters.
