There has been a rapid growth of trans-national education and training in social work but little attention has been given to the importance of developing effective communication through the process of interpretation. Drawing on experiences in working with colleagues in Eastern and Central Europe this paper explores some of the issues in the development of good practice in this trans-national education across linguistic boundaries. Using case examples from the Czech Republic and Ukraine, this paper explores some of the issues and dilemmas educators and translators face when working together to plan and deliver a transnational social work programme. We conclude with a code of practice for interpretation in the context of trans-national social work education.
