A QC and a Judge are fed up with the use of interpreters from Polish call centre, Capita Translating and Interpreting.
Michael Turner QC claims 'screw-ups' over interpreters in UK courts is now 'endemic' as top translators will not work for Capita because of its low pay. Judge Richard Bray accused the firm of being 'hopelessly incompetent' after trial against a Vietnamese drug king was halted because no interpreter arrived at Northampton Crown Court. Some of the language experts supplied by Capita Translating and Interpreting from a base in Krakow, cannot even speak fluent English, claim lawyers.
