For appointments which are diagnostic, sensitive, complex or of a longer duration, such as police interviews, court hearings, medical consultations or client meetings. The interpreter typically interprets consecutively, by first listening to a section of speech and then saying it in the other language.

A cost-effective solution for emergency situations or short appointments, such as enquiries and referrals, situations where you need to contact people in remote locations, or for rare language requests where face-to-face interpreters are less readily available.

British Sign Language (BSL) is the sign language used in the UK to communicate with deaf or hard-of-hearing people.  It is a language of space and movement using the hands, body, face and head.  For people with a loss of vision as well as hearing we can provide qualified interpreters specialising in Hands on signing, Visual frame signing and Deaf blind manual.
