Interpreting and Translation
Fair Futures provides interpreting and translation in a wide range of languages. Almost all of our staff have considerable experience of working in schools and with children and families.
Face to face interpreting
Our interpreters are available for face to face interpreting within Greater Manchester. With their education background, they can interpret confidently at a range of meetings, from parents' evenings to SEN reviews. Cost includes meeting and travel time and expenses.
Short standard translation
Written translation of short standard school letters is at a flat rate. Send us your logo and/or letterhead and we'll send you the dual language letter ready to print.
Using first languages for learning is an important strategy in ensuring access to the curriculum and age-appropriate development for emergent bilingual learners. Having recorded texts from short instructions and prompts to whole stories or nonfiction texts can be invaluable, particularly for pupils who are not literate in their first language. Fair Futures can translate and record sound files for you to use in the classroom, subject to copyright.
Online or phone interpreting
Interpreting via Teams, Zoom or phone makes setting up your meeting easier wherever you are. Fair Futures interpreters can join meetings online, be online to interpret when others are together in a face to face meeting, or interpret on the phone on a three-party conversation. Fair Futures can set up the online/phone meeting for you if needed.
Fair Futures translators can translate longer or more specific translation, specialising in education content. Their experience in this area means they can convey meaning accurately in texts from Bring your wellies tomorrow to EHCPs.
