Quality and Sustainability
Better Serve Diverse Populations
LanguageLine Solutions works with a large pool of highly qualified BSL interpreters up and down the country. All interpreters are registered with the NRCPD database, the body that regulates communication professionals who work with Deaf and Deafblind people and sets standards of professional practice.
LLS is a Corporate Supporter of ASLI and ensures that interpreters are engaged on fair terms, thus promoting the continuous development of the existing interpreter pool, and encouraging trainee interpreters to seek full qualification and career progression.
D/deaf Community Awareness Training
Training and implementation is something that we take very seriously. LLS has a dedicated implementation team that works closely with our clients to ensure that staff are fully trained and understand how and when to use our services.
We also appreciate that understanding British Sign Language and how staff can effectively engage with the D/deaf community can be a challenge to any organisation. This is why we offer a range of additional services to our clients including Deaf awareness training. LLS can also facilitate Level 1 BSL training for staff.
LanguageLine video interpreting service is the fastest, easiest to use, most reliable and secure interpreting solution of its kind. "

We live with the benefit of knowing that they will help us bridge the communication barrier to ensure equal access to healthcare for all. "
