What is Telephone Interpretation and When is the Best Time to Use It?:

Telephone interpretation connects you and the limited-English proficient (LEP) individual you’re interacting with to a professional interpreter via the telephone. Telephone interpretation is extremely effective when you have an LEP individual who needs immediate attention or when you have a relatively simple exchange that needs to take place quickly and efficiently. Telephone interpreters convert the source language into the target language which enables everyone  to understand each other despite not being able to speak the same language. Consecutive interpretation is the mode of interpretation used over the phone, this means the interpreter listens to the person speak, waits until the speaker is finished then renders the content into the target language. This is done back and forth until all of the information has been exchanged.
