Refugee Week 2023: the importance of translation and interpreting
19-25th June 2023 is Refugee Week, a time to acknowledge the struggles and challenges faced by refugees worldwide. It is an opportunity to raise awareness about their issues, advocate for their rights, and support organisations that aid them.
NRL is proud to be part of the effort to assist refugees and people seeking asylum. We offer translation and interpreting services to solicitors who help people navigate the complex process of claiming asylum and seeking refuge in a new country.
Bridging the language barrier
These language services are crucial for refugees and asylum seekers who may not speak the language of the country they are seeking refuge in. Enabling them to communicate effectively with government officials, lawyers, and other organisations that can help them with their claims.
The process of claiming asylum can be stressful and overwhelming, and having access to translation and interpreting services so they can follow the process in their native language can make a significant difference.
Our team of experienced translators and interpreters are fluent in a wide range of languages. They work with refugees to provide accurate and reliable translations of their documents, including birth certificates, passports, and other important paperwork. They also provide interpreting services for interviews, court appearances, and other crucial meetings.
We understand the importance of confidentiality and sensitivity when working with people seeking asylum. The information we’re privy to is often deeply personal and sensitive, and we take great care to ensure that their privacy is protected.
The asylum picture
UK Government data showed that 89,398 people sought asylum in 2022, and the charity Refugee Action report that 62% of people seeking asylum wait longer than six months for a decision.
