The Irish Translation and Interpreting Unit

The Centre for Spoken Irish provides a professional English - Irish and Irish - English translation service to both organisations and individuals.

University College Cork is an institute of learning and research.  This enables Ionad na Gaeilge Labhartha to cater for the translation of a wide range of subject matter as expertise in numerous disciplines is at hand to translators.

A translation committee, under the auspices of Bord na Gaeilge, works to ensure high quality accurate translation.

A wide variety of texts are translated - reports, schemes, CVs, signposts, notices, slogans, titles, names of houses/institutes, theses.

Translators work in partnership with the authors of the original text to ensure accurate expression.  Arrangements relating to target dates, language requirements (e.g. dialect/the official standard) and cost are established prior to commencement of translation.

All material is treated as strictly confidential, thus ensuring privacy and security.

Interpreting Equipment

The Irish Translation and Interpreting Unit has two different types of interpreting equipment. With regards to the two systems, a period of two weeks notice needs to be provided.
