THOUSANDS of highly skilled interpreters and translators could be left unpaid after the collapse of a languages agency.
INTERPRETERS are angry at a further cut in their pay which means that from Thursday they will be paid a little more than half of what they were a few years ago.
TRANSLATORS for foreign criminals have cost £63.8million in three years, figures show.
Non-English speakers need legal papers translated and require an interpreter for trial proceedings.
Translators have cost NHS Tayside more than £364,000 in the past year.
