In recognition of the fact that interpreters work across sectors, as evidenced by the Gray Zone, a coalition developed in Canada that includes two language industry associations, the Language Industry Association (AILIA) and the Association of Canadian Corporations in Translation and Interpretation (ACCTI), as well as Critical Link (CLI), a Canada-based international organization that supports community interpreting, and the Healthcare Interpretation Network (HIN), a national organization in Canada that provides a forum for the development of standards for healthcare interpreters.
After 20 years of interpreters working within the framework of the "cultural interpreter" (an interpreter who advocates and provides cultural information), a working coalition led by HIN, AILIA, and ACCTI conducted focus groups of working interpreters across the country, interviewed clients, formed committees that engaged in extensive discussions with all sectors and stakeholders (including government, nonprofit agencies, interpreter trainers, language service companies, institutions of higher education, etc.), and conducted hundreds of hours of research.
