Cost-Effective Interpretation Services:
Budget can oftentimes interfere with the need to provide professional interpretation services to limited English proficient (LEP) individuals. Interpretation services not only breakdown language barriers but also create a link that bridge both linguistic and cultural divides. Due to the amount of diversity in the United States, professionals from every industry are experiencing first-hand the complications that language barriers create. Over time, more and more people have realized that if they want to accurately communicate with LEP individuals providing professional interpretation services is not a choice, rather a requirement. Over the past few years the language service industry has developed remote interpretation services that accurately and effectively bridge language barriers while allowing you to stay within your allotted interpretation budget. The following is a breakdown of two extremely cost-effective remote interpretation services that permit you to communicate with LEP individuals.
Over the phone interpretation (OPI) is a convenient and user-friendly asset for any facility or organization that regularly interacts with LEP individuals. OPI connects you with an interpreter by phone for pre-scheduled appointments or even for on-demand services, with little to no wait time. OPI is extremely cost-effective due to only paying for the time spent on the phone with the interpreter. Picking up the phone to collect information from an LEP patient or to obtain a recorded statement from a LEP injured worker in a workers’ compensation case can be made easy through the use of professional OPI services.
Video remote interpretation (VRI) is a telecommunication service that uses a sophisticated web-based platform to provide sign language or spoken language interpretation services remotely. VRI gives you access to an interpreter through a user-friendly online portal that can be used for pre-scheduled or on-demand appointments. Much like OPI, VRI is charged per minute so you’re only paying for the actual time spent connected with the interpreter and LEP individual. Not only are there no minimum fees associated with VRI, but you also don’t have to worry about reimbursing the interpreter for travel expenses.
