Partnering with a Professional Language Service Company (LSC):
Investing in professional language services such as translation, on-site interpretation, over-the-phone interpretation (OPI), and video remote interpreting (VRI) can diminish language barriers and allow you to communicate with anyone regardless of the language they speak. In any setting, language services breakdown language barriers and facilitate communication; with the immense amount of linguistic diversity in American communities, providing language services for limited English proficient (LEP) individuals is essential. The following is a breakdown of some of the characteristics to look for when in the market for a professional LSC.
How Long Has The LSC Been in Business and Are There Any Online Reviews?
A good tip is to check online to verify how long the LSC has been in business and if anyone has left an online review of the company or the services provided. These elements can help you determine whether or not that LSC is a good fit for your language needs.
Check Their Website to See if They Offer the Language Services You Need:
Say you operate a healthcare facility that treats a large number of LEP patients and need to have important paperwork translated in order to see to the needs of your LEP patients and gather both consent and vital information from them. In addition to translation services, you may greatly benefit from on-site interpretation, over-the-phone interpretation (OPI), and video remote interpreting (VRI) as well. These forms of interpretation all aid in breaking down language barriers in a variety of scenarios.
On-site interpretation is a wonderful solution for appointments that are information-heavy or complex in nature. OPI is a remote interpretation service that aims to reduce stress, save time and allow you to conveniently communicate with LEP patients. OPI works best when small amounts of information need to be collected; for example: scheduling an appointment, checking up on the patient or verifying information. VRI is a remote language service that combines the visual aspect of on-site interpretation with the remote capabilities and convenience of OPI. VRI keeps the visual as well as audio facets intact allowing it to be a remote method of providing sign language interpretation services. Reputable and professional language service companies will offer at minimum the language services listed above; LSC’s can also offer creative language services such as website localization and transcreation services which aim to aid in the process of globalization.
