About Us

Who we are and what we do

Bridge Interpreting Translating and Training Services is a not for profit Community Interest Company (CIC) based in Gateshead in the North East of England. Our ethos is to provide a high quality, professional and confidential interpreting and translation service.
Bridge is also a recognised accredited training centre which allows us to provide personalised training for each person registered with us; therefore we guarantee that we will always provide qualified interpreters for every booking request that is made with us.
We believe that everyone deserves to be listened to and that nobody should be discriminated against because they do not speak a particular language. This is why we are committed to providing quality interpreting, translation and training to any organisation or individual in the North East of England.“I have been consistently struck by the high quality of service that is offered by interpreters trained by Bridge. I consider Bridge to be a real asset to have within our region”

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to use their skills in the best way possible and that all skills and qualifications are transferrable and that is why we are here to support transition of migrant workers into the UK job market. We are passionate about the work we do and about helping members of our community to see a brighter future and achieve what they really want in life.“We have been more than satisfied with the very high quality services provided by Bridge. The interpreters are always timely and extremely professional. I have no hesitation whatsoever in highly recommending this company.”
