Whilst telephone interpreting is a quick, easy and on-demand service to use, there are certain situations that require a more personal approach. Our face-to-face interpreting service offers extra human interaction and visual contact, which may be more appropriate for complex or sensitive situations.
When looking for a face-to-face interpreting supplier it is important to look for a company with experience and a proven history of providing a high quality service.
At LanguageLine Solutions, we have unsurpassed experience in managing large face-to-face interpreting contracts, which has led us to being a named supplier on some of the UK’s largest face-to-face interpreting framework agreements.
Bookings can be made at any time of the day or night, 365 days a year. Telephone bookings can be made through the UK based call centre or assignments can be booked and managed online via our quick, secure and easy to use online portal.
At LanguageLine Solutions, we provide qualified and security screened linguists across the United Kingdom.
Each of our interpreters must hold appropriate interpreting qualifications and undergo a rigorous assessment to ensure they have the skills required to interpret professionally. In addition to this, all of our linguists must sign a Confidentiality Agreement and accept a comprehensive Code of Conduct before they are accepted to work for LanguageLine Solutions.
In the current financial climate, amidst budget cuts and ongoing pressure to reduce spend on interpreting services, the temptation to choose an interpreting supplier who offers the lowest hourly rate can be very strong. However, it is worth considering which unseen elements of such a service have been reduced or removed entirely in order to offer such a low rate.
You can be assured that we will never provide a face-to-face interpreter that hasn’t passed our rigorous recruitment process or undergone a full security check, including an Enhanced DBS disclosure with barred list check (child and adult).
A low headline interpreting rate is a short term solution to reduce spend on interpreting services, however, the long term cost of adopting such an approach can be unacceptably high. We have a proven track record of working with our clients to reduce face-to-face interpreting spend significantly, without compromising the quality of service we deliver.
