The interpreter can start their assignment
We know that such assignments can be particularly demanding and thus require interpreters with the right skills. Salita has qualified interpreters with the right competence registered in our database.
We mainly use interpreters registered in the National Interpreter Register with the necessary competence and experience.
All our interpreters have signed a declaration of confidentiality.
A significant proportion of our interpreters have also been issued an extended police certificate.
Interpreters who are registered in the National Interpreter Register and in addition have an extended police certificate are prioritized.
The child welfare team at Salita
Linda Lunder is the leader of the child welfare team at Salita. Ever since she joined our team 11 years ago, she has focused her efforts on her passion of working with child welfare.
She believes that children and young people who live in demanding conditions also have the right to understand and be understood. Linda herself has three children and grew up in Holmlia in Oslo.
Three descriptive words about Linda: empathetic, service-minded and solution-oriented.
Salita has held numerous courses for interpreter users and employees in municipalities with the aim of increasing competence in the use of interpreters.
Salita also holds courses on the use of interpreters in the child welfare service. The course is aimed at public officials who use interpreting services in their contact with foreign language speakers. Here we address both general challenges in the use of interpreters, and more specific issues concerning interpreting for child welfare under various measures.
Raymon Strendo is responsible for these courses.
In addition to his job as subject manager at Salita, he is a state-authorized interpreter and trained social anthropologist. He has done fieldwork among interpreters who mainly work in the child welfare service, which resulted in his Master's thesis titled "Same, same, but different." The course includes experiences from this fieldwork, own practice and experience as an interpreter, as well as experiences from conversations with hundreds of interpreters, in almost all languages, through 12 years.
We offer this course both virtually and in-person.
