Watching the news, scrolling through social media, and listening to people talk about all the devastating thing happening around the globe may cause some to lose faith, or even hope. Luckily, there are still people who fight for a future that promises peace, equality and freedom for all by making sure everyone has access to basic human rights. Language services play a critical role in this fight. Here’s how translation services aid in the struggle for critical human rights..
Equality and Non-Discrimination and Translation Services
All human beings are equal and entitled to live in a world without any kind of discrimination. There’s no hierarchy in human rights;, no race, age, ethnicity or language is hierarchically above the others. The U.N., for instance, attempts to eliminate all forms of racial discrimination by making it obligatory for all State parties to submit regular reports, to the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD), on how they plan to implement policies that promote inclusivity and tolerance. These reports come from around the globe and have to be translated into the U.N.’s official languages in order to properly implement equality through the help of translation and localization services.
The Rule of Law And The Role Of Interpreting Services
The final protocol for the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights was published in 1989 and recognized rights such as equality before the law, the right to a fair trial and presumption of innocence, and freedom of thought. Duty-bearers must comply with all given regulations, legal norms and standards enshrined in all human rights treaties. To enable for both native and non-native speakers in different countries to understand their rights, it is important to provide language services, such as interpreting services, to those with limited language proficiency in any given lawful situation.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights And Translation Services
Article 3 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that “everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person”. This article was created as a reaction to what had happened in the concentration camps during the second World War and emphasizes the importance of personal security. The right to life is one of the core rights accepted by almost all countries. This right is more than just the unlawful deprivation of freedom, it’s about the fundamental ability to exercise all other rights, such as freedom of speech, indivisibility, participation and inclusion. With the help of international development translation services and interpreting services in different settings, the exercise of all basic human rights can be ensured, especially in the legal system.
