Using Interpreters Guidelines for Agencies in Christchurch

Wednesday, December 21, 2011   Posted in: Signatory Notice Board By: Administrator With tags: disabilities, culturally and linguistically diverse, migrants

Hello everyone

On behalf of the CLING group (Community Language Information Network Group), I'm forwarding a pdf of this brochure to you. We trust it is useful and well-received by agencies so they are better informed of when and how to use language and sign-language interpreters.

We trust it gives them knowledge and confidence to access language and sign interpreters. We also hope it is useful to members of language communities in Christchurch. We hope that when people who would like an interpreter phone up or call in to our agencies, that the response is warm and good. You might like to encourage them to show or use the little 'card' that you can see on this brochure.

I hope to receive the hard copies of these brochures from the printers (and folders!) today. If you'd like a hard copy, please let me know (03 941 8097 or and we can send them out to you.

I hope you are pleased with the layout of this information and the brochure. We wanted it to be size that fits into brochure stands, but a larger font than the previous brochure you may have seen on Communicating with CALD communities.

Special acknowledgement to the three key excellent providers of interpreters in Christchurch:

  • Interpreting Canterbury
  • Language Line (Office of Ethnic Affairs)
  • i-Sign

We are very fortunate to have their professional services in our city.

Warm Regards
