Many organisations will work with you through an interpreter. It is always good to ask for an interpreter, and in some cases insist on this. Some organisations, particularly those which are part of the NHS, do use interpreting and translation services. It is usually the responsibility of the service provider to book an interpreter, but you do need to ask for this in advance. It is not the customer’s responsibility to pay for interpreting
