The figures are taken from the Department’s Business Management System where they are jointly categorised as translation and interpreter services. Information is based on all calendar years from January 2011 and up to 30 September 2014.
The significant increase in spend in 2014 can be primarily attributed to the translator and associated costs for the Global Action Against Dementia Summit.
