Community Interpreters

Who is a community interpreter?

It is a trained interpreter who helps migrants overcome language differences and also knows how to handle cultural differences.

Community interpreting in Prague is currently offered only by intercultural professionals.

Contacts for community interpreters and translators experienced in the field of education in Czech regions can be provided by regional coordinators of the National Pedagogical Institute (NPI).

More information on community interpreting in Czech is available on the website Inkluzivní škola.

For interpreting over the phone, you can also use a special helpline of Caritas Czech Republic.

The line is available in Ukrainian, Vietnamese, and Mongolian. It is intended for migrants living in the CR as well as public administration staff dealing with migrants. For contacts and the working hours of the helpline, see the website of Caritas CR, who is the provider of the service.
