Testing Process

Guidance For Your Path Of Success

Navigate the Interpreter Credentialing Journey with Ease

UniversalLanguage is dedicated to helping interpreters achieve their credentialing goals and deliver the highest quality services to their clients. We provide this through our third-party testing for the  Department of Social and Health Services Language Testing Certification program (DSHS LTC). Now, branded as a Recognized Medical Interpreter because DSHS LTC has stopped testing for Certified Medical Interpreters and Authorized Medical Interpreters. They are renaming their credentials for third-party testers to Recognized Medical Interpreter for both tests because this identifies the interpreter as a third-party tester with the same rights and authority of the grandfathered and legacy “Certified Medical Interpreter” and “Authorized / Screen Languages Medical Interpreter.

On this page, we’ll guide you through the testing process, providing an overview of what to expect, tips for preparing, and information about taking and receiving the results of your test.
