Interpreting and Translating
Lincolnshire County Council, in accordance with current legislation, wants to treat everyone fairly.
Although we do not translate things as a matter of course, there are times when the language barrier prevents people from accessing a service. In such cases it may be appropriate to provide an interpreter or written translation. For example, children’s services sometimes need to use an interpreter for social worker visits.
It is also important to ensure that we are understood by those who speak little or no English on legal matters such as school appeal hearings and inclusion and attendance matters in education.
From the 1st September 2016 DA Languages will provide interpretation and translation services to Lincolnshire County Council.
Their service will include:
- Telephone Interpreting
- Interpreting - face to face
- British Sign Language
DA Languages can be contacted on:
