Interpretation Services Break Down Language Barriers:

Due to the rapid growth of limited English proficient (LEP) individuals in the United States, professionals in every industry are facing language barriers that are negatively affecting the ability to accurately communicate. With over 350 languages spoken in the United States, it’s common to run into language barriers on a daily basis. Owning a business or providing legal or healthcare services to the public guarantees you will interact with a LEP individual. Many cities in the United States have large populations of both culturally and linguistically diverse individuals and these individuals still need to utilize mainstream American services such as healthcare, legal assistance, educational, and governmental aid as well as a plethora of other services offered. Lives don’t stop due to a language barrier which is why it’s important to utilize professional interpretation services to accurately and effectively bridge language gaps.

The following is a breakdown of professional interpretation services that will greatly benefit all industries who are facing the negative effects caused by language barriers. 

On-Site Interpretation:

On-site interpretation keeps both the audio and visual aspects of an interpretation service intact due to the physical presence of the interpreter. Having the ability to see, hear, and feel the conversation allows interpreters to produce the highest quality and most accurate communication. On-site interpretation is best used when content is sensitive in nature or perhaps emotionally challenging. Onsite interpretation services are wonderful for interactions between lawyers and their LEP clients, office meetings, depositions, hearings, doctors visits, court appearances or any other matter where there is a need to communicate with LEP individuals in precise and accurate detail.

Telephonic Interpretation:

Telephonic interpretation services are extremely effective when a LEP individual needs immediate attention or when there’s relatively simple dialogue to engage in. Professionals from various industries are taking advantage of the vast benefits telephonic interpretation provide and relying on the interpretation service regularly in order to communicate with individuals who do not speak English. Telephonic interpretation is very cost effective due to the fact you’re only paying for the time spent on the phone with the interpreter. Telephonic interpretation connects you with an interpreter through pre-scheduled appointments or through on-demand services, with little to no wait time. Conducting business with international partners in remote regions or simply scheduling a follow up appointment with a LEP patient is made possible through the use of telephonic interpretation.

Video Remote Interpretation (VRI):

Video remote interpreting is a language service that uses telecommunication software to connect people who are in need of an interpreter via the internet. VRI ensures effective communication is facilitated without the physical presence of an interpreter. Despite the lack of physical presence, VRI keeps the visual aspects such as facial expressions, body language and visual cues intact. This creates a superior platform in which remote sign language interpretation can be provided. Video remote interpreting is cost-effective due to clients only paying for the time spent with the interpreter. VRI can be pre-scheduled or accessed on-demand with little to no wait time. Video remote interpreting is growing in popularity and allowing people to make efficient and accurate connections despite language and cultural diversities.
