MIGRIs new provider for Linguistic Origin Identification

On 27th of September 2018, Verified received notification that its tender to carry out language analysis for the Finnish Immigration Service (Maahanmuuttovirasto) has been approved.

Following a public procurement, Verified has been awarded a contract as sole provider of language analysis to the Finnish Immigration Service (Maahanmuuttovirasto). Verified already holds contracts with the United Kingdom’s Home Office, Sweden’s Migrationsverket, Norway’s Politiets Utledningsenhet, Denmark’s Udlændingestyrelsen and Ireland’s Office of the Refugee Applications Commissioner (ORAC), as well as cooperating informally with a handful of other authorities. This latest successful bid is part of a continued effort to lead the development in language analysis by increasing quality, as well as transparency.

The contract was won due to Verified’s ability to meet the technical requirements, quality assurance and demands for transparency of the Finnish Immigration Service. Verified is looking forward to a productive business relationship and hopes it will be mutually advantageous.

Linguistic Origin Identification

Verified provides expert testimony regarding linguistic behaviour, in particular relating to an individual´s linguistic background. These services are required by police, migration authorities and immigration attorneys for trials in court. We also assist non governmental organisations.

Verified employs a dozen of linguists, trained in areas such as creole languages, dialectology, interview technique and forensic phonetics.

Verified has conducted in excess of 24.000 analyses. The use of the same rigorous and well-defined methodology in each case ensures that analysis reports can be assessed and used in a safe and easy way, whether that be during an investigation or in court.

Equally indispensable for a clear and reliable result is the active language competency of a native speaker. To meet this requirement, Verified maintains a network of around 240 native speakers with training in auditory analysis to cover about 100 combinations of linguistic varieties and regions.
