Interpreter Strip
Tonight, a Life scout is receiving a German Interpreter Strip for his ability to converse fluently. This is the first Interpreter Strip issued in our troop, so I see it as being a pretty big deal. I don't know of any others in our community, either.

Since there is no official application form and the completion of the requirements is up to the unit leader, the actual work required to wear an Interpreter Strip most likely varies a lot from troop to troop. I suppose it's common place in some troops and I expect I'm on the more stringent side. :-)

This scout showed me the letter and translation he did, signed by his language instructor. He also supplied a written note from his instructor that he carried on a 5-minute conversation and translated a 2-minute speech.

Now, maybe we can get a few scouts earning the Swedish strip before the World Jamboree in 2010!
