1. How much did your organisation spend on translation services (written) in the financial years 2015/2016, 2016/2017, 2017/2018, 2018/2019 and 2019/2020?

For the above questions (question 1 + question 2), if your records give a total figure for translation and interpreting and you cannot give separate figures, please mention this in your reply.
For the interpreting spending (question 2), please mention whether it includes or excludes British Sign Language (BSL). Ideally, I would prefer the spending without BSL, but do let me know what data you can provide.
3. What languages were covered by the above spendings? Just to clarify, I do not need a breakdown of costs per language, just a list of languages that you had requests for over those five years.
4. What was the total Expenditure Budget (including financing) of your organisation for each of those financial years? It is probably something like a few hundred million pounds per annum.
