The Language Service Industry Has Evolved in the Age of Technology:

People normally associate interpretation services with the thought that an interpreter will show up at the scheduled location in order to facilitate communication between individuals who do not speak the same language. On-site interpretation is used all over the world and is one of the most accurate and insightful forms of interpretation, however, the language service industry has come a long way in the development of a solution that combats many situational obstacles that can arise when acquiring interpretation services. Video remote interpreting (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-schedule or on-demand appointments. The only components needed to successfully utilize professional VRI services include a computer, smartphone or tablet and internet connection with sufficient bandwidth. The technologically advanced language service is being used in a variety of settings including courtrooms, schools, police stations, emergency rooms, hospitals as well as business settings.

VRI keeps all aspects of an interpretation intact, you’re able to hear and see the individuals participating in the interpretation session despite all parties involved being in separate locations. VRI combines all the features of an on-site interpretation with the convenience of over-the-phone (OPI) interpretation, which sets the stage for a very accurate and successful session. Being able to see body language as well as the facial expressions of the people communicating, allows the interpreter to better convey the intended meaning of the exchange. Keeping the visual component intact also allow for sign language interpretation to be conducted remotely. This is an innovative step in providing quality interpretation solutions to deaf individuals for a variety of situations including doctors appointments, court proceedings and even in emergency medical settings. Anytime, anywhere access applies to both spoken as well as sign language interpretation services when using VRI.
