What Are The Benefits Of Professional In Person Interpreter Services?
We offer a variety of interpreter services such as over the phone interpreting and video remote interpreting. Remote interpreter options are invaluable, but there are many benefits to having a professional in-person interpreter in the room with you.
Consider a healthcare environment where sensitive information may be discussed. A language barrier can add to confusion and discomfort.
An in-person interpreter is suited to relay sensitive information between providers and patients since they are able to accurately read body language and cues between the two. Many patients report feeling more comfortable in the room when the interpreter is with them instead of isolated and alone.
Professional interpreters continuously educate themselves on the industry in which they specialize and are trained in the art of seamlessly facilitating communication. They remain unbiased and can read body language and facial expressions to ensure everything is being properly conveyed and understood.
