SECTION IV: Administrative Information
1.The review will consider the current accreditation and regulation structures of the translation and interpretation profession in Wales, and will specifically scrutinize the work of Cymdeithas Cyfieithwyr Cymru (The Association of Welsh Translators and Interpreters) and the funds allocated to it.
2.In light of the publication of the Welsh Language Measure (Wales) 2012 and the establishment of the Welsh Language Commissioner and the prospective Welsh Language Standards, the review must consider whether the current accreditation and regulation structures meet the needs made of the profession. Also, the most appropriate structures in the context of the powers of the Welsh Language Commissioner should be considered. The review must also consider the regulatory structures of other professions and the work of other commissioners.
3.The review will recommend which structures are appropriate for the regulation and accreditation of the translation and interpretation profession. The review will therefore aid the Welsh Language Commissioner to determine the best approach to supporting and developing the translation and interpretation industry. It may also help other stakeholders to determine their activities in this field.
4. Tenderes must consider the criteria set out in the specification when submitting their tenders.
