Celebrating Ramadan: Supporting our Muslim Freelance Interpreters and the Languages Affected

As a leading interpreting and translation agency in the UK, we take pride in our diverse team of talented interpreters. With the holy month of Ramadan upon us, we want to highlight the significance of this observance and share how we support our Muslim freelance interpreters during this time. Additionally, we will provide a list of languages that may be affected due to interpreters observing fasting during Ramadan.

Ramadan is a sacred month for Muslims worldwide, marked by fasting, prayer, and self-reflection. From sunrise to sunset, practicing Muslims abstain from food, drink, smoking, and other physical needs. It is a time of increased devotion to faith and spiritual growth.

Supporting our Muslim Freelance Interpreters: At our agency, we are committed to creating an inclusive and supportive environment for all our team members. During Ramadan, we take special measures to ensure that our Muslim freelance interpreters can observe their religious obligations while still providing exceptional language services to our clients.

Flexible Scheduling: Recognizing the challenges of fasting and managing energy levels, we prioritize flexible scheduling for our Muslim interpreters during Ramadan. We work closely with them to accommodate their preferred working hours, allowing them to strike a balance between their religious practices and professional commitments.

Languages Affected during Ramadan: While our Muslim freelance interpreters continue to deliver their services with dedication, it is important to note that certain languages may be affected to some extent due to the observance of fasting. The following languages may experience limited availability or scheduling constraints during Ramadan: Arabic, Farsi (Persian), Urdu, Turkish, Bengali, Indonesian, Somali, Malay, Kurdish, Punjabi.

Supportive Communication: Open communication is the foundation of a supportive work environment. We encourage our Muslim freelance interpreters to communicate openly about their needs and concerns during Ramadan. By actively listening and responding to their requirements, we strive to create an environment where they feel valued and supported.

As we honor the holy month of Ramadan, we stand in solidarity with our Muslim freelance interpreters and support their observance of this important time. By accommodating their religious obligations and providing a supportive work environment, we empower them to excel in their roles while honoring their faith. We remain committed to delivering exceptional language services to our clients while fostering understanding, respect, and appreciation for all our team members.
