Interpreting for the Scottish Court Service
Face to Face Interpreting
Our client, the Scottish Court Service, required a large number of qualified and experienced Slovak interpreters for a particularly high profile case.
Due to the nature of the case and the conditions of our contract with the client, the interpreters had to be experienced court interpreters and hold the Diploma in Public Service Interpreting. In addition to this, interpreters who had previously been involved in this case at the preliminary police appointments could not then be used for court purposes as they would be cited as witnesses in the case. As a result of this activity, the pool of suitable interpreters in the area quickly depleted although the case was continuing and interpreters were required for various witnesses throughout the case.
Through our connections with the Chartered Institute of Linguists, the Institute of Translation and Interpreting and our network of interpreters throughout the UK, we were able to source qualified interpreters from elsewhere and arrange the travel and accommodation with the client resulting in no disruption to the case or alteration to the client’s requirements.
