Languages - how to translate this site
Language Point is the only provider of interpretation and translation services in Sunderland. Its objective is to offer affordable quality professional language support, thus enabling public services and private organisations to provide equitable services to non-English speaking clients.
Interpretation and translation services are delivered by a pool of sessional workforce. All staff undergo a strict selection procedure and have nationally recognised qualifications in community interpretation / translation. Their development is continuous and needs-based, and professionals are encouraged to take part in this process. Language Point Interpreters and Translators will provide you with an impartial, accurate and culturally sensitive service in both languages used in communication.
