Professional interpreting services can help you and your organisation to communicate with those who speak other languages, across a wide range of situations. Our interpreters are all highly experienced, qualified and fully vetted professionals, so the quality of their work is assured.
We provide interpreting services to a range of commercial and public sector organisations, including the police, the NHS, councils, and fire safety training colleges, who all recognise the value of effective communication with their service users, no matter what language they speak.
Our interpreters require a wide range of skills and abilities to meet the various requirements of our diverse range of clients. Linguists will be assigned based on different criteria, such as whether they might be working within a healthcare environment, legal situation or with informal community groups.
“Capita Translation and interpreting provided us with a site based interpreter, to enable the hospital to effectively meet the demands of Lithuanian-speaking patients in a timely fashion.”
“The interpreting service provided by Capita TI has meant that we can plan for future courses with confidence in the knowledge that linguistic issues will not provide a stumbling block.”
“Capita are very efficient at getting interpreters for use on demand.”
Our interpreters can cover a range of situations, each appropriate for different environments and circumstances. We can advise which approach is best for you, including:
Interpreters are physically present at the meeting or appointment, and will relay an interpreted version to the third party. Consecutive interpreting is usually used in situations such as medical appointments and confidential hearings. Simultaneous interpreting is more appropriate for larger audiences, such as international conferences.
The interpreter is available at the other end of the phone or video link, and you can be connected in as little as 15 seconds. This is a cost effective, immediate solution, ideal for situations when the need for interpreting arises with little notice, and can be accessed any time of day, from anywhere, using any device.
