Who uses our directory

At ACIS we represent the interests of our members by bringing awareness to service providers of the importance of using qualified community interpreters.

Public Sector Bodies

Our aim is to make the interpreter directory accessible to all organisations in the public sector to achieve impactful, quality results for the service user, the interpreter and the wider community.


Agencies have to fulfil a myriad of customer requests often on an urgent basis. Our directory offers interpreters in rare languages that you may struggle to find otherwise.


Working with restricted budgets make it challenging to use qualified interpreters. Our full members have the expertise and knowledge to provide a quality service at Community level.
