Doncaster Interpretation and Translation Unit

Providing a high quality service to overcome language barriers.

Doncaster Interpretation and Translation Unit (DITU)

DITU has been established since 2005 to ensure that local services are more accessible for members of the community for whom English is not their first language or are unable to communicate effectively enough in English. Interpreters can help to overcome language barriers and ensure that important messages are not missed and that all the community can access services such as health, education, legal and benefit services equally.

At DITU we have a variety of interpretation and translation services available to organisations and it may be that you need to access one or all of them. We offer a free, no obligation opportunity to assess the needs of your organisation and offer advice and guidance on services available, whilst ensuring costs are kept to a minimum. We pride ourselves on offering a high quality service at competitive rates.

Services include:

  • Face to Face interpretation - Used for any type of appointment or meeting, when information on procedures need to be explained, to assist with language barriers during client visits or in training. For example, health and safety briefings. 
  • Written Translation - letters, posters, information leaflets, agreements (e.g. contracts, working policies, legal information, health and safety information etc.).  
  • Review and develop new services to meet customer needs.
  • Staff training - using an interpreter, choosing the right service or designing training for interpreters on specific processes for your organisation.
  • Advice and Guidance - ensuring best value for the work carried out.
