About Praxis Interpreting+

In today’s complex world it’s often difficult for service users to get their voices heard by the people and organisations they’re trying to communicate with – especially when different languages are involved. Language barriers can cause frustration, delay and misunderstanding – just when it’s most important for service users to be heard clearly. And it’s frustrating for service providers too.

At Praxis we understand this, which is why we’ve put together a special team of interpreting and translation experts to help you and your service users get the message across accurately, easily and fast! 

We offer the highest quality professional services, both written and spoken, across a wide spectrum of issues, including business and health care (where accurate medical translation is critical), and across local authorities, public service providers and voluntary organisations. We have flexible booking arrangements that respond to both routine and unexpected situations, while our interpreters understand your duties and responsibilities and are completely impartial. 

We offer:

  • First-person, direct speech interpreting specialists
  • Services in over 30 languages
  • Tailored expert services in interpretation and written translation
  • Competitive rates
  • Qualified and experienced professionals
  • A rapid turnaround for written translations
  • Online and telephone booking system
     

Our services are quick to access and available in many community languages – including: Albanian, Amharic, Arabic, Bengali, Bulgarian, Cantonese, Czech, Dari, Farsi, French, Italian, Hindi, Japanese, Kurdish, Lingala, Lithuanian, Mandarin, Polish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Romanian, Russian, Somali, Sorani, Spanish, Sylheti, Tamil, Turkish, Tigrigna, Urdu, Vietnamese.

Praxis Interpreting+ is a social enterprise and we are proud of the diversity of both our staff and service users. We value what each person brings, and our Praxis diversity policy can be found here. We are determined that people from all backgrounds should feel welcome and comfortable in Praxis, and able to make full use of the services and opportunities we offer. We create work opportunities for members of the local refugee and migrant communities who have advanced-level language skills.
