Face to face interpreting services

 

At Best Languages Link we understand the importance and complexity of working with a non-English speaker. This can be demanding and challenging at times. 

 

We aim to provide our clients with professional, experienced and confident interpreters providing a successful outcome in relation to an instant and correct interpretation. Our recruitment policy ensures our interpreters are both experienced and qualified as well as DBS checked.

 

Our face to face interpreters are qualified with either DPSI, Community Interpreting Qualificiation or other qualifications and/ or are members of National Register of Public Service Interpreting, Institute of Linguists, Institute of Translators and Interpreters and/ or Association of Police and Court Interpreters.

 

Our intepreters are required to carry the Best Languages Link photo ID card and show it on arrival to the assignment venue.

 

 

Best Languages Link interpreters can assist you in all face to face language contexts and requirements 

 

 

As per the standard Model of Interpreting, our interpreters are trained to follow either:

 

  1. ​Linguistic Model of Interpreting: The Interpreter ONLY uses the information he/she hears to interpret; i.e. does not get involved in asking questions or does not get involved in discussion in order to remain impartial. (typical for Public Service Interpreters)
  2. Advocacy Model of Interpreting: The Interpreter support the client in asking questions; ensuring the client understands what is being said; i.e. GP surgery where a patient is being supported with possible consequences or ask to sign forms or make decisions. (typical for Community Interpreters)


In addition we ensure our interpreters undergo our strict selection and appointment procedures together with having an Enhanced DBS Clearance
