Interpretation for Police

Interpretation for Police

London Translations provides accurate interpretation for police services around the country, ensuring the language barrier is not a barrier to vital police work.

What Is Police Interpreting?

The police often need to talk to members of the public in order to do their job. These citizens could be experts, witnesses, victims or suspects. Whoever they are, if they do not speak fluent English, the police will need interpreters to talk to them.

Police interpretation is essential to many cases, especially those in which witnesses or suspects who speak foreign languages have vital information. Because police work is so sensitive, our interpreters are trained in many procedures, including arrest, statement-taking and detention. They also have comprehensive knowledge of police and legal terminology used in civil and criminal cases, allowing them to truly understand everything that is being said and convey it accurately to both parties.

Our police interpreters are all 100% impartial, which means those speaking to them can trust them to deliver their message. Trained to remain calm under pressure, our interpreters can act as a calming presence in demanding circumstances, making sure everyone in the conversation is accurately understood.

Do I Need Police Interpreting?

Without interpreters, the police force simply could not do its job. Interviews with suspects, witnesses and victims of crimes are essential, and if these individuals speak a language other than English, interpreters have to be brought in. If officers can’t successfully interview these individuals, investigations will never be fair or thorough. With police interpreters, this risk is eliminated.

At London Translations, we have developed a video interpretation system to be used by the police, providing reliable, secure, web-based video interpretation on-demand. This grants police forces access to over 140 languages from any computer 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This means you can connect with interpreters wherever you are, whenever you need them.

As an ISO 9001:2008-certified company, we only work with trained and disclosure-verified interpreters with experience working with the police.
