OUR TEAM

Our Interpreters

Our team of interpreters are all language-assessed to ensure they are fluent in both English and their mother tongue or professional translation language. They are prepared for a variety of situations and to have understanding of specific technical terminology and many of them are qualified with the DPSi or the Community Interpreting Course, developed by ourselves and Bradford College.

  • All adhere to a strict Interpreter’s Code of Conduct, ensuring confidentiality, impartiality and that they interpret word for word
  • All interpreters are DBS checked and references are followed up
  • Unique to Enable2, all our interpreters are insured – covered by both professional indemnity insurance and public liability insurance
  • Interpreters are also trained to work with professionals in different work environments
  • Thanks to our background in the NHS many of our staff have particular expertise and knowledge of medical and clinical issues, for example in counselling, speech and language therapy and palliative care. This enables interpreters to be prepared for a variety of situations and to have understanding of specific technical terminology

Our Support Team

Enable2’s service is managed by a call centre based in the NHS offices in Bradford. The team uses a bespoke booking system which allows a swift response, accurate logging of a request, acknowledgement and an email response with details of a named interpreter.

You can expect:

  • A friendly and professional manner to guide you through our services
  • Access to a large pool of both employed and self-employed interpreting and translation staff who cover all the most popular and many less common languages so even if you are looking for something unusual we may well be able to help – just call and ask
  • A 24/7 and 365 day call handling service
  • Service delivery throughout the week and weekends

So, give us a call and see what we can do for you – we’re always happy to help!
