Welcome to the web site of the National Register of Public Service
The National Register of Public Service Interpreters (NRPSI) maintains a register of professional, qualified and accountable public service interpreters. Using the National Register to find an interpreter ensures that you not only employ a qualified practitioner but that the interpreter can be held accountable should their conduct or competence fall below the high standards expected of a Registered Public Service Interpreter.
Using an unregistered interpreter means that you risk using someone who is unqualified and should you have an unsatisfactory experience you will not have access to a formal complaints procedure.
The Register lists interpreters who have satisfied our entry criteria in terms of qualifications and experience. All interpreters on our register are subject to a Code of Professional Conduct and we may investigate any alleged breaches of the Code.
The Register is currently made up of the names of over 2,200 interpreters in 101 languages.
NRPSI became independent of the Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIoL) on 01 April 2011 therefore any queries relating to NRPSI pre 01 April 2011 should be directed to CIoL at email@example.com.
