It is not uncommon for people to move to other places in pursuit of job opportunities, new experiences, or simply to feel safer. Increasingly, the UK is welcoming people who may not speak the same language as the rest of the community around them. This language barrier is often a problem when it comes to accessing public and social services or aid.
Translation and interpreting services have become vitally important to the daily lives of people all over the country by breaking down the language barrier, thus making public and social services, such as education, healthcare, and housing more accessible. Access to these amenities, afforded to non-English speakers by way of language-access services, can be life-changing.
At Translate UK, we understand the need for high quality, confidential and responsive interpreting and translation services. Over the past 16 years, we have worked closely with several Councils and Local Authorities across the country, providing essential linguistic support for non-English speakers within communities and delivering comprehensive language support to Councils and Local Authorities to improve communication within their constituencies.
Through the provision of high-quality services, ranging from written translations of crucial forms and legal documentation to face-to-face and remote interpretation, we enable Councils and Local Authorities to engage with their communities in a meaningful and inclusive way. This has made us the supplier of choice for several public services providers.
Our network of linguists comprises experienced, qualified individuals who are not only vetted and DBS checked, but who in many instances possess further training, experience and qualifications. Additionally, they sign a code of conduct and data protection agreement to ensure professionalism and compliance with GDPR regulations.
We are of course aware that budgets – and deadlines – are getting ever tighter, which is why we pride ourselves on offering fast and accurate services at competitive rates. This is underscored by extensive, in-depth experience across key areas, from courts and tribunals to education, healthcare, housing, childcare and more.
As communities across the UK continue to evolve, Councils and Local Authorities need to consider partnering with a skilled and trusted language-access provider which offers transparent, accessible, and responsive services. Translate UK can deliver services in more than 200 common, rare and obscure languages, with an extensive pool of specialised translators and interpreters who can offer critical language access, wherever and whenever it is needed.
