This document draws upon the Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice for Educational Interpreters of Spoken Language that was developed over the span of five years by the University of Minnesota Program on Translation and Interpreting and the Minnesota Department of Education with support from grant #H323A100010 from the Office of Special Education Programs at the U.S. Department of Education, https://education.mn.gov/MDE/dse/sped/div/el/. We appreciate the Minnesota Department of Education and the National Code of Ethics for Interpreters in Health Care (NCIHC 2005) for providing the initial framework for these nationally vetted standards for educational translators and spoken language interpreters. Our special thanks to the National Accreditation of Educational Translators and Interpreters of Spoken Languages (NAETISL) Board of Directors https://www.naetisl.net/board-of-directors/, Standards and Best Practices Standing Committee Coordinators, and the University of Georgia Faculty for providing guidance on survey development and data analysis, along with insightful recommendations and feedback.
