Communications News: Crime victim group offers BME groups online translations

Victim Support has paid translators £22,000 to produce six of its fact sheets in 11 languages.

The fact sheets provide information on coping with the effects of crime and giving evidence in court. They are available in Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, Greek, Gujarati, Hindi, Punjabi, Somali, Turkish, Urdu and Vietnamese.

“This new information should help meet a vital need in reaching people from all communities and cultures in the UK,” said Paul Fawcett, head of communications at Victim Support.

The information is only available online to save the charity money on print costs.

“Previously, we produced leaflets in hard-copy format but they didn’t reach as many people as we would have liked,” said media and PR spokesman Andrew Buckingham.
