Yorkshire Water have renewed their telephone interpreting contract with global language technology company, thebigword Group.
Yorkshire Water is one of the largest regulated water and wastewater companies in the UK, relied on by people within the Yorkshire County for their basic health needs and lifestyles.
This contract renewal will allow Yorkshire Water to continue to utilise thebigword’s telephone interpreting services to support their call centre operatives when speaking to customers whose first language is not English.
Carolyn Wilde, Director of Strategic Accounts at thebigword Group said: “Yorkshire Water provide essential water to over 5.4 million people every day and we are proud to continue breaking communication barriers with those who live in the area following this contract renewal.”
thebigword’s telephone interpreting allows users to connect with a professional linguist in less than 30 seconds. The service is available on-demand 24/7 and provides users with access to thebigword’s network of over 15,000 linguists.
