Not giving interpretation technology the attention it requires can create problems. The best efforts of interpreters can be rendered completely ineffective by inadequate technical support. These technologies require time, human resources and technical understanding to ensure they function well.

You can get this by hiring a private company to take responsibility for it. However, the costs can be prohibitive and this can place serious limits on your political process. (See sections on language and simultaneous interpreting)

COATI is a collective formed out of solidarity, not a private sector company. This means we work together with organisations to find flexible solutions and ways to work with the (sometimes insane!) practices and working hours of the social movements. See section on the collective.

We invest in sustainable solutions that feed back into social struggles, and we aim to maximise accesibility and the autonomy of social movements through the technology we use.
