Towards sustainable development of language services for the public sector

The ecosystem of language service procurement and provision within the UK’s public sector encompasses public sector organisations who commission and use translation and interpreting services, together with the supply chain – language service companies and the translators and interpreters providing these services. At the very heart of the system are the individual people requiring translation and interpreting in their own languages.

In this ecosystem, the ATC represents language service companies from micro enterprises and SMEs to large companies providing the widest range of services in over 300 languages, using modern technologies for scheduling and managing translation and interpreting assignments.

The ATC actively works together with stakeholders across the entire ecosystem, specifically the commissioning organisations and the associations and organisations representing translators and interpreters. Within the association, the ATC’s Public Sector Procurement Committee comprises ATC Member companies actively involved in the sector’s work.

ATC Public Sector Manifesto

The ATC’s Public Sector Manifesto, published in 2019, set out the ATC’s objectives towards sustainable development within the procurement and provision of language services in the UK’s public sector.

In its public sector engagement, the ATC identifies and promotes best practice, embracing the Government’s strategies around digitalisation and support of small and medium-sized enterprises while acknowledging and appreciating the challenges for those responsible for procuring public services in the current economic climate, following a prolonged time of austerity and in the future.
