Language Services for the Public Sector
If you are a public body, you are able to purchase language services under the ESPO 402_20 Framework. The framework (which went live on 1st July 2020), enables public bodies to deliver equality, fairness and greater understanding of their service users by purchasing language services from a number of organisations. Items available on the framework include:
- Face to Face Interpretation Services – Spoken and Non-Spoken such as BSL
- Telephone Interpretation – connection 24/7 within 60 seconds
- Video Interpretation (spoken and non-spoken)
- Translation – into over 250 languages, including machine translation
- Transcription – secure services by security cleared personnel
- Other language services
