Stockport Interpreting Unit (SIU)

1. Overview

SIU has over 35 years of experience providing interpretation and translation services across Greater Manchester, including contracted and non-contracted services and interpreter training courses.

  • Stockport Homes
  • schools and colleges
  • solicitors
  • many other organisations and individuals

We provide an efficient service by making sure the booking process is easy and fulfilment rates are high.

Our new interpreter booking portal is key to the efficient delivery of services. The system is available 24/7 and it’s highly intuitive. This makes it easier to input specific interpreter requests quickly and keep track of the progress of these requests.

We’re committed to the delivery of a safe and high quality service. We only accept interpreters with the correct qualifications and checks. As an accredited training provider, we have the expertise to rigorously assess interpreters’ knowledge and skills. We also require interpreters to undertake safeguarding, Prevent and annual data protection training. We pay our interpreters fairly, and do not engage in practices which compromise the integrity of the industry.

As a public service provider, we’re not driven by profit. We use public funds responsibly and keep customers at the centre of our work.
