Interpreter Education Online


Interpreter Education Online, or IEO for short, is a language-specific comprehensive training and testing platform. Initially created to test and train foreign language interpreters, we have expanded our offerings to include ASL interpreters and translators. IEO is accredited through CCHI and a CEU provider with IMIA, ATA, RID and all participating SCAOs. We offer the most comprehensive number of training options available in the industry with webinars, skill-building or topic-focused lessons, and long courses to meet the needs of linguists in any phase of their professional career, from newbies just entering the field, to certified interpreters in need of CEUs. Of course, we also have training options for interpreters getting ready to sit for CCHI, NBCMI or state court exams.

We work with individual linguists, language companies, healthcare organizations, municipalities, and SCAOs to advance the standards of our profession and to grow the numbers of tested, trained and certified linguists in a wider variety of languages.

Here is what our students have said about us: 

“Unlike many online courses where there’s a lot of talking and the student is basically idle, this one makes me work hard and learn a lot. And that’s how I like it… Very glad I enrolled.”

“I always struggle to find high quality courses online to comply with my CE credits, but this time I was quite impressed with the Autopsies course provided by IEO.

The course was interesting, sufficiently challenging and I now have a great glossary that I put together as a result. The signing up process was quick and easy, and I’m looking forward to taking more courses from them in the future.”

“Your online service is the best! I told all of my colleagues here in Houston to check out your online courses and they all agreed that the best way to renew LCI is to take CE courses from IEO.”
