Garda Vetting for Translators and Interpreters in Ireland

Garda Vetting for Translators and Interpreters in Ireland

Garda Vetting is a background check completed by the National Vetting Bureau on individuals to establish if a person has a criminal record in Ireland. It is one of the legal requirements for professional interpreters who translate for state bodies and vulnerable persons. Example include: hospitals, schools with children under 18, prison, courts. Irish authorities require interpreting companies to conduct Garda Vetting on their interpreters before allowing them to discharge their duties.

TRANSLIT is preparing for a large government project

We are getting ready for a big interpreting project in Ireland for public services and government organisations, and would like to invite professional interpreters to join our team.
