The Language and Media Support Services, is a government-registered private organization constituted with the main objective of bridging the gap between the service-seekers and serviceproviders, basically as far as translation and interpretation services are concerned. With more andmore companies coming into the fray with no direct experience of the services of their own, the real service providers are being left out of the picture, resulting in high cost for the service seekers while they have to compromise with the quality of service at hand.Meanwhile, the actual service providers are also being deprived of the real price of the intricate, delicate and mentally tiring service they provide.
Considering this situation, three professional interpreters and translators have come together to form an organization of their own and hence reach out to the service seekers themselves. This will not only benefit the service seekers and providers but also help improve the quality of service in the long run.
Apart from ensuring good quality and reasonable pricing of the service of translation and interpretation, the LAMSS also aims to expand and promote the service by encouraging more people to take up translation and interpretation as a full time job. For this, the organization intends to train young people to eventually become professional translator and interpreter. LAMSS will also be working to bring together all the translators and interpreters in service under one umbrella and develop and enforce a code of conduct to ensure the smoothness, quality and quantity of the service across the country.
Considering the adoption of a Federal system of governance by Nepal, there will be a huge demand for language interpreters, especially in local languages as provinces will adopt two or more languages as the language of official use. Hence, LAMSS will be sharing the experience of consecutive and simultaneous interpretation as well as document translation to the would-be interpreter and translators at the province and local government levels.
