It is only when a crime occurs (and sadly it happens more often than you would imagine) that tourists and visitors to other countries discover how, in addition to being affected by the crime itself, their situation as a victim can be compounded by language difficulties, and/or cultural, administrative and legal differences with their home country.
We aim to try and bridge that gap and HELP YOU in your time of need.
Communications with the authorities, police, medical staff and lawyers sometimes become a day-to-day necessity when serious issues arise. This can be problematic if you don’t speak the local language or understand the local systems. Not only do things get lost in translation, victims and their families often end up having lengthy official documents translated that are not always necessary. Alternatively, they may try to improvise by using translation apps or other ad-hoc methods that may lead to vital information being missed or incorrect instructions or observations being given.
Our multilingual team of experts at Victims Abroad are offering a bespoke and sensitively priced service to meet your needs and cut to the chase regarding understanding administrative, legal documents and dialogue and communicating your thoughts, opinions, needs and wishes .
Our Victims Abroad team, professionals fluent in Spanish, French, Catalan and Portuguese, can tap into their extensive network for all your needs regarding other languages such as German, Romanian or Scandinavian languages.
Victims Abroad is a subsidiary of the David Swindle Crime Solutions team which specialises in serious crimes in the UK and abroad and killed abroad cases, so our linguistic expertise is combined with a vast range of experience in a variety of issues which can help you deal with whatever crime you encounter in another country.
