Telephonic interpreting can be an extremely effective tool that’s useful when a rapid response is required. However, there are some situations which would benefit from a more personal face-to-face interpretation.
Our interpreters have a vast range of experience in working in sensitive settings and face-to-face is often a more appropriate service for complex circumstances. With a swift response to any request, we can arrange for an interpreter even at very short notice.
We believe that our face-to-face interpretation service is always a positive experience but there are some situations which particularly benefit from having a physical presence rather than over the telephone.
Here are some scenarios where face-to-face interpreting should be a priority:
When it’s a legal matter
When the use of language has an impact on the application of the law, face-to-face interpreting is essential. This is particularly the case in the courtroom, or when preparing an individual’s statement for court. An interpreter can ensure absolute accuracy in this critical area.
Business is now a global affair and being multilingual is more important than ever. Having one of our expert interpreters present for big contracts adds a degree of professionalism and ensures nothing gets lost in translation, quite literally.
To fully understand your rights
There are a range of scenarios where you may have certain rights which are difficult to understand. This may be connected with tenancy, immigration or employment. If you’re arrested, it’s vital to understand your rights and under EU law, every person is entitled to receive free interpretation.
Where full understanding is essential
When a doctor is conveying serious information, such as a diagnosis or results from a test, being able to understand the information is absolutely essential. It can be hard enough processing what’s being said, even when English is your first language so an interpreter in these circumstances plays an indispensable role. Other situations may include health and safety instructions, or anything else where misunderstanding could be disastrous.
There are many different circumstances where having the personal touch is imperative. Sexual assault victims who don’t speak English or a young child who needs to convey information to a social worker are just such examples. In these cases, talking about the situation may be challenging enough but adding in the language barrier may make it impossible.
We have extensive experience in all of the above and our expert interpreters can provide professional services to facilitate smooth communication.
Some of the most delicate situations require an interpreter but there’s nothing our bank of extremely experienced professionals won’t have seen before. We provide interpretation and translation services for:
And many more!
Our discreet and professional service provides the interpretation required to navigate even the most difficult of situations, covering areas such as mental health, medical needs, immigration and family law. We can provide linguistic support for vulnerable clients, minors and anyone else who requires interpretation in order to communicate and access information.
If you require the services of an interpreter as quickly as possible, you might want to consider our telephone interpretation. This works very well for basic information as well as those times when the need is extremely urgent.
However, we can provide a face-to-face interpreter within a very short space of time, giving you more options for more complex interpretation needs.
Whatever language you need, you can trust us to provide you with a professional interpreter who can help. With a huge bank of languages and dialects, and with a database that’s continuing to expand, we can help with any situation.

Where you’re expecting to need the services of an interpreter on an ongoing basis, we can select from the same group of interpreters each time. This helps you to build up a relationship, making the process much simpler. We believe it’s the small details like this which really matter, and sets us apart from other interpreter and translation service providers.
