Interpreting and translation

Interpreting and translation

As a member of Helplines Partnership, we invite you to consider using one of our Trusted Suppliers - LanguageLine Solutions and Word360 - to offer helplines and charities access to over 350 languages, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Members benefit from our lowest rates for written translation and telephone interpreting - we can also help non-members access discounts from our partners.

On-demand interpreting allows you to access an interpreter in less than a minute* while paying only for what you use with per minute billing and no setup or training fees.

*Service standard, not always guaranteed

Why telephone interpreting?

Telephone interpreting is an efficient and affordable on-demand service to access professional interpreters that provides a method of communicating with limited English speakers.

Interpreting works effectively whether you are:

  • receiving an inbound call or other contact
  • making a scheduled call back
  • face-to-face with the service user

Why translation services?

Translation services are offered across email, text and webchat correspondence, which are the more convenient modes of communication for many.

This service permits anyone to access information and avenues of communication digitally without any language barriers, giving them the full picture.
