Does Applied Language Solutions Assess all Interpreters?
I am not on the National Register, in fact, at the moment I am preparing to sit the DPSI exam in June.
I am registered with ALS and have a profile on linguistlounge.com
I was called on my mobile before Christmas when a lady from ALS asked me if I was going to take their assessment and why not - I said I was not going to do it, at least not yet.
I can see I am a Tier 1 interpreter on ALS linguistlounge - no assessment, no formal qualifications, no proof whatsoever I can actually interpret.
Also, I have stated I have a CRB check - but have not uploaded it, so again - ALS do not know if it actually exists.
Next, I have been getting phone calls asking me to interpret at Magistrates' courts, have received text messages notifying me of "suitable" court or tribunal jobs.
I have offers waiting for me to accept them on my ALS linguistlounge profile - all for courts and tribunals.
Now, I am sure this is not something the MoJ would approve of and would like to make them aware of it.
I have proof - print screens of my profile, print screens of my offered jobs, e-mails with job offers, text, log of phone calls asking me to go.
I am not going to disclose my name here because I am pretty sure someone from ALS is lurking around trying to get 1st hand info.
What is the best thing I can do with the evidence I have, do you think it would be of interest to the MoJ/Solicitors/etc?
