2M has won four interpreting and language services contracts with Australian and NZ government departments.
Ensuring that essential public information is accessible in all languages other than English is paramount to social equity. The new contracts will see 2M provide interpretation and translation services to improve access to public services for culturally and linguistically diverse communities.
The Victorian Department of Health recently awarded 2M with the Language Services for Victoria Health contract. The contract will allow Victorian hospitals to take advantage of 2M’s best-of-breed interpreter booking and remote interpreting technology app 2M lingo™. Taking a culturally appropriate approach to interpreting for health information, 2M interpreters will enhance CALD patients’ experience and empower decision making through accessible information in their own language.
Additional wins adding to a growing portfolio of government contracts are:
- Interpretation and translation services for Administrative Appeals Tribunal,
- Interpretation, translation, transcription and communication services for the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (NZ) and
- Face-to-face interpreting services for the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (NZ).
The new contracts come at a pivotal time in the lead up to 2M’s major sponsorship at the Federation of Ethnic Communities Council (FECCA) 2022 Conference in Melbourne. With contracts now secured, 2M will be able to advance access to essential government services with faster and more effective engagement.
Of 2M’s recent contract success, 2M Head of Interpreting Tamas Nyeste said that he was, “Hoping to see people of different backgrounds and a wide range of realities cooperate better, and live healthier and happier lives”.
