Interpreting and translating services

School or preschool

A school or preschool can arrange free interpreting and translation services so that non-English-speaking parents can support their child's education.

Interpreters convert spoken word - eg when enrolling children, at parent-teacher interviews or in other face-to-face situations.

Translators convert written word from one language to another - eg school notices, medical forms, reports.

If you require interpreting and translation services, please contact your local school.
