Announcing the publication of the report “The International Humanitarian Sector and Language Translation in Crisis Situations”

INTERACT team members from UCL, ASU and CTTS in DCU jointly conducted interviews at the end of 2018 with 20 representatives of international intergovernmental organisations, and non-governmental organisations on the degree to which the service efforts of such organisations are informed by commitment to multilingual communication and language translation. The goal was to understand how these organisations contribute to risk reduction and improved community resilience via translation. This short report provides an assessment of the current state of practice and key language access issues in the humanitarian sector. The full report is available here.
