An article published in the Nottingham section of the BBC News website has revealed that a police and crime commissioner believes that the translation services used in the legal system is of poor quality. We take a look at the article in today’s video.
Suggestions are made that Tipping believes that the courts system is being badly affected by the use of a telephone service being used by Nottinghamshire Police instead of a translator being provided in person.
A spokesperson for London Translations said recently…
“This report highlights the problems in trying to balance costs and effectiveness. It’s clearly cheaper to use telephone-based interpreters as opposed to having them attend in person but that’s only part of the problem. Our strong suspicion is that pressure on the public purse has meant that the budget available is not sufficient to allow for the use of top-tier interpreters, leading to the frustrations expressed”.
