All Graduates Interpreting and Translating Services and our telephone and video interpreting specialist service InterpreterLine, have launched a series of Language Tip Sheets to navigate the potential pitfalls of selecting the right language interpreter for their client. Each downloadable and online information sheet addresses languages that are commonly requested.
“When a client contacts us, our Booking Coordinators will always ask several questions to ensure we book the most suitable interpreter. We’ve produced these Tip Sheets to save our clients time and give them confidence that they’re booking the right language interpreter.” says CEO Ismail Akinci.
Language Consultant and Translating and Interpreting Lecturer, Dr Uldis Ozolins created the content for each of the initial five information sheets. The publication aims to prevent easily avoidable errors for clients booking an interpreter or translator in that language.
Dr Ozolins highlights the languages that our community services sector are more likely to come across in the future. Historical references illustrate the evolution of a language and although a brief and succinct mention, provide essential insight. For example, when discussing Swahiliin the Languages of East Africa Language Tip Sheet he writes: ” it became the official national language of Tanzania, one of the relatively few African languages that have been given this status in preference to former colonial languages.”
