ONCALL UK: Caring for your local residents...

Local government processes and the method in which services are offered to their residents have gone through several changes in recent years. This industry will continue to adapt in an effort to become more efficient and cost effective whilst maintaining the level of services offered to residents.

Local government suppliers need to introduce innovation into their business to ensure a cost effective, quality service is provided. It is equally important that the Council is performing their duties under the Equality and Diversity Act 2010. Our local government interpreting and translation services guarantee proper communication in the most challenging multilingual environments.

ONCALL has the solution…

Quality Management

Every interpreting and translation professional registered with ONCALL UK has undergone strict, rigorous recruitment procedures including reference checks, qualification checks and DBS checks. Our multilingual experts are also subject to further training to guarantee continuance of professional development. For our clients, this provides reassurance that the received high level of service is standard, regardless of region or language.

Face-to-face interpreters are sent with a feedback form, which clients are encouraged to send back to ONCALL UK after completing. This form is not only used as a record of provided local government interpreting services, but also as a reference for continually improving client satisfaction.
