Language-information database goes on-line

Keywords: Foreign languages, Service industries, Databases

A database which holds records of professional language-service providers - translators, interpreters, cultural consultants and language trainers - is now available on-line.

This means that the Languages National Training Organization Business Language Information Service can be searched by anyone in need, for the cost of a telephone call.

Companies or individuals searching for language training can specify the delivery method (for example, one to one or evening classes), check the professional accreditation of the service provider and search by geographical area. Virtually all languages are covered, and specialised technical areas such as legal or business language can be selected.

For further information, telephone Georgina Burge, at the Languages National Training Organization, on +44 20 7371 5134.
