Legal Interpreting Services

Absolute Translations provides professional interpretation services for all types of legal situation, including court appearances in criminal and civil courts, tribunals, police interviews, solicitor and legal council meetings and prison visits. Our legal interpreters work to the highest standards, delivering interpretation at the level required for court or tribunal evidence, with extensive experience in the ethics of legal interpretation such as impartiality, confidentiality and accuracy. With a growing population of non-English speakers or people for whom English is not a first language, professional, high-quality legal interpretation in the UK is often essential to guarantee that justice is delivered, whether in criminal trials in magistrates court, crown court or high court or civil cases in county court and family court or other areas of the legal system. Ensuring that defendants and witnesses understand proceedings fully, and that they are fully understood, ensures the fairest possible treatment and the best possible outcomes. Our legal interpreters all have extensive experience working in the legal system, and we will match you with an appropriately trained interpreter who can deliver the required standard of interpretation.

Interpretation for every legal situation

As well as legal interpretation in criminal and civil court cases, Absolute Translations provides professional legal interpretation services for a wide range of other legal situations, from immigration, asylum and employment tribunals and school exclusion panels to prison and police station visits. Using the services of an interpreter for prison visits facilitates communication and understanding with guards and prison authorities and can improve outcomes resulting from prison visits with professional and legal advisers.
If you need an interpreter for a legal situation in a European country, in local courts or the European courts, we draw on a global network of interpreters and can connect you with an experienced professional based in the local area. In the medi-legal sector Absolute Translations are able to provide specialist medical interpreters who are proficient with both medical and legal terminology and used to working on all medical legal scenarios, from negligence hearings to expert medical witness testimony. As well as face-to-face interpreting services, we are also able to provide telephone-interpreting services for scenarios such as legal consultations over the phone, and interpreters for more informal face-to-face situations such as briefings and community-based meetings.

Years of experience in the legal industry

Absolute Translations works with the highest quality interpreters who are trained to pick up on nuances and speech tones and convey them in another language, an essential skill in legal situations where evidence must be accurately represented. Giving defendants and witnesses not fluent in English the opportunity to fully understand proceedings and evidence being presented ensures that trials are fair and impartial. Whatever type of legal interpreting service you require, whether it’s simultaneous interpretation in court, consecutive interpretation or a situation with a legal requirement for a written record, Absolute Translations can advise on your needs and supply both experienced interpreting staff and if necessary any audio equipment required. A high level of professionalism is essential for legal interpretation, and our membership of the Association of Translation Companies and two ISO certifications are evidence of our commitment to those professional standards.
