Face-to-Face Interpreting

When you need to communicate between English and Polish speakers, I will provide the most professional and accurate Polish Interpreting Service available.
I am fully Coronavirus vaccinated. Last booster jab received in December 2021.

Due to COVID 19 pandemic virus, I can offer Video Conference Interpreting via Zoom, Skype, MS Teams, CVP and other platforms available or standard Telephone Interpreting.


High Security Interpreting

I assist with Polish Interpreting in Crown Courts, HM Prisons and Police cells. I have High Security Counter Terrorist (CTC) Clearance with the Home Office and NPPV3 Clearance with the Police, as well as ECRB.

All remote interpreting with the Ministry of Justice is performed via the Cloud Video Platform (CVP) system. CVP allows highly confidential video communication to connect users securely to the justice network.  It is designed to be straightforward, simple and secure for connections between advocates, prisons, courtrooms, professionals and interpreters.

Interpreting in Courts:

The right to an interpreter is an integral part of the right to a fair trial. It is a principle of English common law that the Defendant must be able to understand the charges made against them and be able to properly defend themselves. The right is also enshrined in the European Convention on Human Rights.

Interpreters working within the Criminal Justice System should be registered on the National Register of Public Service Interpreters (NRPSI)

NRPSI are an independent, voluntary public interest body and their core role is to ensure that standards within the profession are maintained for the benefit of the public and interpreters.

Clients:

  • Public Sector, to include: Magistrates and Crown Courts in Cornwall and Devon (for MoJ and CPS), also Employment Tribunals, NPS, Home Office, Local Government, Police, Councils, NHS, HM Prisons, education and more.
  • Private Sector, to include: Solicitor and Advocate's Chambers, Insurance firms, Corporate companies, Overseas businesses and private clients.

Language Interpreting

Language interpretation is the facilitating of oral or sign-language communication, either simultaneously or consecutively, between two parties of different languages. An interpreter is a person who converts a thought or expression in a source language into an expression with a comparable meaning in a target language either simultaneously in "real-time" or consecutively after one party has finished speaking. 

The interpreter's function is to convey every semantic element (tone and register) and every intention and feeling of the message that the source-language speaker is directing to target-language recipients.

Simultaneous Interpreting is where the interpreter conveys the source language into the target language as the speaker is talking. Frequently employed for larger groups (i.e. international conferences), simultaneous interpreting often requires significant preparation.

Consecutive Interpreting is when the interpreter begins his or her interpreting after the speaker has finished a complete message. Once the interpreting has been completed, the speaker will begin again. This is the typical form of interpreting for job interviews, medical consultations etc.

Please Note: a ‘Polish Interpreter’ is often referred to as a ‘Polish Translator’.

Whether your dealings are business, financial, legal, medical, social, technical, or academic-related, I can offer Polish-English & English-Polish Interpreting, on a regular and ad hoc basis.
