Interpreters & Translators
In general, all of our linguists are DPSI, NRPSI or IOL accredited. We also recognise a number of other interpreting and translation qualifications, such as those provided by accredited universities and the LOCN. Please see the related links section of this page for more information about the above qualifications.
We work in partnership with professional bodies, government organisations and service users to promote better opportunities for the professional development of linguists. For example, we were part of the steering group for the review of the National Standards in Interpreting, which also includes representatives from the Institute of Linguists, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and CILT, the National Centre for Languages.
We are a registered body with the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB), which helps us to identify candidates who may be unsuitable for certain work. All interpreters and translators applying for accreditation with us are screened by the CRB.
Equal opportunities policy
We are strongly committed to promoting equal opportunities for everyone, regardless of their race, colour, nationality, or national or ethnic origin.
