Translation and Interpreting Services
Telephone interpreting is now a vital service for many companies and professionals around the world. 2- to 5-way conference calls can normally be set up anywhere in around a minute.
Does your organisation need a personalised service? We can set up dedicated ‘language hotlines’, which connect non-English-speakers directly to an interpreter who speaks their language.
Are you a new user? Call us on 0800 731 7878 to set up an account. This will take only a few minutes and is completely free – we have no set-up fees or subscription charges. You will have instant access to all interpreting and translation services that we offer.
Not sure of the language you need? We will be able to help you find out. If your client is with you, try using our language id card.
Face to Face Interpreting
Do you need consecutive interpreting, simultaneous interpreting or chuchotage?
Consecutive interpreting. Is where the speaker pauses after each sentence to give the interpreter chance to relay the information into another language. Often the interpreter will take notes so that they can recall information.
Simultaneous interpreting. Is usually described as conference interpreting where the linguist works from a soundproof booth with a headset and microphone interpreting into their mother tongue at the same time as the person presenting the conference is speaking.
Chuchotage (Whispered) Is very much like simultaneous but without the equipment. It is literally the interpreter whispering to one or two people.
The translation of written material, such as leaflets, technical manuals, posters, letters, reports and web sites, is a key component of many ‘organisations’ communications strategies. Translated documents are typically provided via e-mail in Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat format.
Send your document to us by secure e-mail, secure upload, fax or post, stating the language and format you require. For example, you may choose to have the completed translation e-mailed to you as a Word or Acrobat document or hard copy. We can also return your translated material in most other formats.
When sending documents by post for translation, if possible, please send copies and not originals. (At the end of an assignment, we will return all original documents and artwork by standard first-class post unless otherwise agreed.)
Once we have discussed your requirements we will e-mail you a quotation for the translation, together with a project go-ahead form.
Video remote Interpreting V-Link24
Some situations require the flexibility of a face-to-face British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter, but there are often long lead times to obtain their services.
When such a situation arises at short notice, staff and the Deaf customer can use our On-Line BSL Video Interpreting Service. This service enables you to make a video call to a fully qualified BSL interpreter using a standard webcam or a mobile device with an inbuilt camera.
No specialist equipment is needed and a BSL interpreter can be available in minutes.

Multilingual hotlines enable your clients to contact you, in any language, anywhere in the world. The service can be used for a whole range of support solutions, for example, technical support, order placement and general enquiries.

British Sign Language
Within Britain the most common form of Sign Language is called British Sign Language, (BSL). BSL is the preferred language of over 70,000 people within the UK.
All our Sign Language Interpreters are highly qualified and members of the National Register of Communication Professionals (NRCPD) This status allows an interpreter to work in all settings.
The Equality Act 2010 states, it is a requirement that organisations have a duty to put ‘reasonable adjustments in practice’ to enable deaf or hard of hearing individuals to access their services.
Dual handset telephones
We can also provide dedicated dual handset specialist telephones pre-programmed with a direct link to us.
This provides greater privacy by not having to use the loudspeaker. Also, both you and your client are able to control the handset volume independently. A great feature for the hard of hearing.
