Pioneering translation system for Mazarron

An innovative move by Mazarron council in conjunction with the Autonomous Government of Murcia is making sure that it is easier than ever to manage all the bureaucracy and paperwork required for life in Spain. Thanks to new technology it is easier than ever to pay your taxes and the language barrier is no longer an excuse!

Mazarron has been chosen to pilot a scheme aimed at making life easier for foreign residents with a system of instant translation. The technology works with earphones which you can speak into in your native language and your speech is then received through the earphones in Spanish.

In the pilot scheme, several languages will be available for the instant translation system including English, German, French, Arabic amongst others. Mazarron seemed the ideal choice for the pilot scheme, according to the authorities as around 46% of the total population are foreign residents, 30% from other European countries and the remainder are from Morocco.

Now if only somebody could invent one to translate between men and women, all our problems would be solved!

Other measures to ensure that administration is easier for residents of Mazarron are also in place and the Servicio de Atencion al Cuidano (SAC) is an initiative which is trying to make red tape easier for all. The aim is quick, personal attention for residents and the Town Hall has four windows to deal with enquiries, payments and other admin functions.

You can pay taxes, ask for a fishing licence and process paperwork amongst other tasks.

In addition those with internet access can manage their administration over the web at meaning that you donít even have to leave the house to deal with that car tax demand.
