INTERPRETATION SERVICES

CEOTIS – Central Eastern Ontario Translation and Interpretation Services is housed at Quinte Immigration Services in Belleville. Our agency has provided precise, immediate, accurate and confidential linguistic translation and interpretation services to a large number of agencies, businesses and individuals for over 10 years. We are pleased to provide an improved link between human service professionals and limited-English speakers in over 125 languages.

We service the region from Lindsay to Brockville, Ontario for both translations and interpretations.

Interpretation is the act of providing oral translation between or amongst speakers who speak different languages. An interpreter can be booked to facilitate your communication with a person/client who speaks limited English.
