Translation services for housing organisations and housing support providers

A voice for every home

The UK has seen a significant rise in language diversity over the past few decades, with an increasing number of limited English speakers.

Due to this increase, the demand for multilingual translation services in relation to housing and property maintenance is greater than ever.

It is vital for housing organisations and support providers to meet the needs of their local communities, regardless of the language they speak.

Communicate with tenants in a language they understand

Language barriers can pose significant challenges for housing associations. To ensure that marginalised migrant communities in the UK receive appropriate housing support, it is crucial to seek assistance from a reliable translator or interpreter.

It is essential that information given to tenants is understood no matter the language differences. Offering translation and interpreting services will facilitate two-way communication between tenant and housing services and will ensure;

  • No misunderstandings arise from language differences
  • Better service support
  • Accurate reporting of repairs to avoid misplaced priorities
  • Fewer maintenance delays
  • A safer housing environment
  • Tenants feel heard and understood

The absence of professional translation services can lead to the use of unreliable alternatives like Google Translate or friends and family, resulting in poor translation and miscommunication.

When communication is completely hindered due to language barriers, relationships suffer, and both parties fail to meet their respective needs.

The risks include operational issues such as maintenance delays and misplaced priorities, along with potential reputational damage, property damage, and legal consequences. This is especially the case if a housing association and their support services fail to address language needs, leading to substandard living conditions.
