Interpretation to and from English

“The following questions refer to any interpretation from another language into English, or from English to another language as well as British Sign Language (BSL) interpretation.

For the last 3 financial years (2016/17, 2017/18, 2018/19), please could you provide the following:

1. What suppliers have the Council been using for Interpretation Services?

Devon County Council hold one contract with Signs Solutions, but a significant volume of work is spot purchased.

2. Could you provide the total annual spend for interpreter services in each of the past 3 financial years (2016/17, 2017/18, 2018/19) to date as well as broken down by language / BSL?

Devon County Council do not maintain a central budget for these services and therefore do not hold this information.

3. Which languages did the interpreters support the Council with?
a) Please list each language in order of highest to lowest in terms of use/bookings.

Information not held; we do not keep a record.

b) Please list how many times/bookings the interpreters worked for you in each language.”
