Business interpreting

If you are deaf and use BSL or SSE, we can provide interpreters at competitive rates.

Deaf Education Interpreter

All of our interpreters are regulated by NRCPD as either qualified RSLIs (Registered Sign Language Interpreters) or TSLIs (Trainee Sign Language interpreters).  We use our own in-house team of interpreters, plus a number of external London-based interpreters whom we know and have worked closely with.

Our interpreters are regularly supervised and observed and attend training events throughout the year to keep their skills and knowledge up to date.

We can provide interpreters for different situations:

For work…

If you have a funding allowance from Access to Work (AtW) for your interpreting support, you can arrange for us to invoice ATW directly for the costs.  Alternatively, we can invoice your employer so that your employer can claim back the funds from ATW.

You may need BSL interpreters for meetings, training events, work conferences, interviews, supervision or for one-to-one sessions with colleagues. You may book interpreters to help with telephone calls, communication in the office, modifying emails or for translating documents and work policies into BSL. You may also want your presentations to be interpreted from BSL into spoken or written English.

For regular work bookings, we may be able to provide a special rate to fit in with your budget. Please contact us for more information.

In the community…

Contact City Lit if you need an interpreter for a healthcare appointment or training event. We can provide interpreters for anything from social events and religious ceremonies to parents’ evenings or exhibitions.
