Exciting new contract with Bedford Borough Council

June 9, 2022by Samantha Perren

Our latest success: new contract with Bedford Borough Council

After a robust competition we have been awarded a contract with Bedford Borough Council (BBC). We will be managing all their linguistic requirements: face to face interpretation, BSL, phone and video interpreting and translation.

Our services will contribute to BBC’s goal to ‘support people and empower communities’, by allowing people whose native language is not English to fully engage with BBC’s services.

Exciting new contract with BBC

How we stand out from the competition for new contracts

Vast supply chain → rapid response times

On our new contract Absolute Interpreting and Translations will exceed BBC’s requirements for availability of linguists as we do for all our clients. As a result, we exceed expectations for response times and ability to fulfil short-notice urgent appointments. We can guarantee this because we have 21,000 qualified linguists in the UK and a large network of interpreters across Bedfordshire. This includes instantly available video interpreters and services in non-spoken languages such as BSL.

Maximum efficiency management → maximum savings for clients

Our award-winning management system will provide BBC staff with a rapid, user-friendly online booking system. This system enables 24/7 access to 390 languages from one single portal.

Outstanding social value for the communities we serve

  • Maximising recruitment in the local area and from disadvantaged groups
