Share Article

The Institute for Language Professionals, a subscription-based website, has opened its virtual doors to all those interested in advancing their knowledge and skills as language professionals: translators, interpreters, editors, proofreaders, and similar professions.

Positioning itself as the language industry’s foremost professional development community, ILP offers unlimited access to a searchable body of learning material, and content that users can look up on demand and use right away.

Current content, designed to support those who want to work on improving and expanding their skills on their own schedule, is organized in easy-to-navigate lessons, videos, and practice sheets. Plans for the near future include specific online courses on a variety of different topics, and certifications in cooperation with academic institutions and leading industry professionals.

The material is organized in six modules: English for Language Professionals, Business for Language Professionals, Skill Set: Translation, Skill Set: Interpreting, Tool Set, and Life & Lifestyle. The modules are designed to support all important areas of a language professional’s career and life. A list of currently covered topics in each module is available on the website. New content is added on a weekly basis.

The main driving force of ILP is the team of Teneo Linguistics Company, LLC, a successful language services provider based in Fort Worth, TX. The content of The Institute of Language Professionals, however, is a joint effort of translators, language industry professionals, as well as academia.

“According to our own experience and also recent industry surveys, most of those who make a living using a language have not taken any additional classes since beginning their career. This is not because they do not want to but rather because they do not have access to them. We are here to change that. Our industry is very competitive and staying ahead of new developments and technology – and at the same time revisiting tried and proven knowledge and methods – is a necessity”, says Hana Laurenzo, CEO.

The Institute for Language Professionals offers two simple levels of all-access pricing – monthly and annual.
