Language Services Go Far Beyond Translation:
As vital as translation is to the language service industry, language service companies (LSC) offer a wide variety of other services that aid in facilitating communication and understanding. Modern LSC’s aim to provide a link that allow the exchange of information from one language into another. Communication written or spoken shouldn’t have to be compromised due to a language barrier, especially when there are so many language solutions available through a professional LSC.
Professional LSC’s offer on-site interpretation which is considered the best method of obtaining the most accurate conversion of information from one language into another. This is because on-site interpretation is conducted face-to-face, allowing for the advantage of not only hearing but seeing the interpreter which creates positive communication and an accurate interpretation. On-site interpretation is extremely beneficial in breaking down language and cultural barriers and ensuring information is interpreted accurately. The physical presence of an interpreter oftentimes allow limited English proficient (LEP) individuals to feel more comfortable in a seemingly uncomfortable situation.
LSC’s also offer telephone interpretation which connects you over the phone with an interpreter through pre-scheduled appointments or through on-demand services, with little to no wait time. Having a business conversation with partners overseas in remote regions or simply scheduling a follow up appointment with a LEP patient is made possible through the use of telephone interpretation. Telephone interpreting is extremely cost effective due to only paying for the time spent on the phone with the interpreter. It’s a wonderful language service when simple exchanges need to take place.
Video remote interpreting (VRI) is a language service, provided by a LSC that uses telecommunication software to connect people to an interpreter via the internet. VRI ensures effective communication is facilitated without the physical presence of an interpreter. This easy to use and cost effective language service is being utilized in various places such as hospitals, medical offices, mental health facilities, higher education settings, court systems as well as in business settings. VRI an advanced solution for the language service industry as a whole. No other remote interpretation service has the ability to be used for sign language and that opens many doors and opportunities to facilitate communication remotely for deaf individuals.
