MOSAIC protects the confidentiality of all professionally acquired information, disclosing such information only when properly authorized or legally/professionally obligated to do so. The confidential nature of our relationship with clients is also respected. We refuse to divulge any confidential information to any person(s) without the knowledge and consent of the client, and we only record information essential to the job.

Professional and Agency Standards

Our translators (sub-contractors) are contractually bound to treat any work assigned by MOSAIC during and after its performance as confidential, as well as any information to which they become privy as a result of performing the sub-contracted work.

Interpreters recruited by MOSAIC are professionally and contractually bound to accurately convey the contents of a message. Consistent with professional standards, we require interpreters to remain impartial, abide by strict rules of confidentiality, acknowledge any professional limitations and remain true to the source language by preserving the integrity of the message.

Further to linguistic competence and accreditation, applicants must meet MOSAIC’s standards for professional and ethical conduct. Interpreting and translating involve much interpersonal contact; all interactions must reflect MOSAIC’s expectations of excellent service and ethical conduct. The recruitment processes for interpreters and translators include steps to reveal applicants’ professional and ethical conduct.
