Medical interpretation ethics behooves the interpreter to adhere to their professional code of conduct at all times. This means that the MI is going to interpret everything said in the clinical encounter with the patient, including any differences of opinion, conflicts or unpleasant interactions that happen during that encounter. The MI is not there as to sensor the conversation or interpret selectively.
