Translating for the Government
As the population of the UK becomes more diverse, managing the cost of translation has become an issue for many government departments. The subject has received exposure in the press, TV coverage and has even been mentioned at Prime Minister's Question Time.
In light of this, the Efficiency & Reform Group (ERG) formerly call the OGC, has established a pan-Government framework for translation services. This agreement is called RM987 Translation, Transcription & Ancillary Services and is managed by Government Procurement Service an executive agency of the Cabinet Office.
This framework is OJEU compliant and open to all aspects of Government (both Local and Central). It is strongly recommended by the Government Procurement Service that if you work for a Local Authority, Government Department or any other Government Agency that you use this agreement to manage your translation needs.

Scottish Prison Service
"K International's translation service has been instrumental in assisting the Scottish Prison Service to deliver information in meeting the needs of prisoners."
Crown Prosecution Service
"The Crown Prosecution Service works with criminal cases in England and Wales. They require translations of confidential documents regarding court cases. Witness statements and case histories are often required in other languages to ensure that all parties involved in the prosecution are aware of what has been recorded and what will happen next. The stories from each part in the case are translated with notes from the police officers and court officials. We have also translated evidence such as letters and phone records as well as arrest warrants from other countries."
The Welsh Assembly
"We found your service to be outstanding! Turnaround of work was well above expectation, communication was excellent. We always have a great experience talking to your technical team, this is especially helpful when we are working on online and multimedia projects. We tested all of the translation with our own translators and they were very impressed with the quality of the work provided. Thank you."
Great London Authority
"They have always produced the transcriptions in good time and to a high standard and have provided a high level of customer service and support to the service they provide. I have no hesitation in offering a reference to K International."
Maritime and Coastguard Agency
"They have produced a consistently good standard of work and always delivered results on time, even when deadlines have been tight. The most impressive thing for me is the level of customer service provided and the willingness to resolve any issues quickly. I have no problem recommending their translation services"
