Searching the Register
You will be able to search for UK registered translators on what will be the largest open-access database of translators in the UK. You will be able to search for a specific translator either by registration number or their name. All registered translators will have a unique Registration number. The Register of Public Service Translators (NRPST) will be a dynamic database, accessible from every page of this website. Once completed, the Register can be used in two ways:
1) To check if a translator is registered
You will be able to search for a specific translator either by registration number or by their name. All registered translators will have a unique registration number.
2) To engage with a translator
You will be able to search for a translator to engage by language and location.
Further information under 'Show more Details'
If there is an orange 'Show more Details' showing at the top of a Registrant's record, it indicates that the Registrant has decided to provide more information about their record. This will appear in a pop-up box after clicking on 'Show more Details'.
This additional information will include the Registrant's qualifications and CPD record, professional memberships and a free text area.
For all qualifications shown, NRPST will have seen and checked the original qualification certificate. The qualifications information shows the name of the qualification, the year and the awarding/examining body (for example 'IoL' for Institute of Linguists Educational Trust - recently renamed as CIOL Qualifications).
Note the information provided by the Registrant in the free text area will not have been verified by NRPST.
