Translation and Interpreting for Local Government can be anything from the translation of information leaflets, public signs and entire websites to the provision of interpreters for service users interacting with Council services. We have been providing language services to numerous councils across the United Kingdom since inception in 1991.

We take care to match the requirement of each job to the skillset and experience of each interpreter. For instance, in a case involving repeat appointments with housing benefit officers, we would look to provided the same interpreter at each appointment for the sake of continuity on the part of the service user, and to ensure clarity we would source an interpreter with legal experience and/or knowledge of the benefits system.

Prestige Network is a longstanding trusted partner of over 170 public sector bodies, helping organisations such as the Department for Works and Pensions (DwP), Stirling Council, Canterbury City Council, Oxfordshire County Council and many more to communicate effectively in more than 270 languages and dialects. Whether for external publication or internal communication, each project is tailored to the requirements of the client.

Our Translators are all native speakers of their language and fluent in English, as well as qualified subject matter experts. Our Interpreters are vetted, qualified and security-checked to appropriate levels. We are happy to undertake translation work for all divisions within a Council. As local government is required to cater for a variety of social and ethnic groups, the translation of information leaflets, public signs or warning notices can all be tailored specifically for the elderly, the disabled or other sections of the wider community. Give us a call and see how we can work together today.
