You can use any language (including Gaelic and British Sign Language) to:

  • write, email or send BSL videos to the Scottish Parliament or your MSPs
  • send in a petition
  • send your views to a committee

You can ask us to translate our information into the language you use.


You can ask for an interpreter if you:

  • are invited to come and speak to a committee meeting
  • want to engage with parliament business in your preferred language
