Over the phone interpreting
Our translation agency delivers over the phone interpreting services for all languages. Over the phone interpreting (OPI) knocks down communication barriers. Our phone interpreters interpret on three-way phone calls and video conference calls. Preparation in advance for each call results in high-quality performance. They request a description of the conversation topic in advance and require a minimum one-hour reservation at a specific time set in advance. In addition, they provide Skype and video remote interpreting (VRI) services. The audio and visual components of video conference calls allow the speakers to quickly establish rapport. For example, a Chinese patient at a clinic or hospital may call a Chinese phone interpreter to better communicate with an English-speaking doctor.
OPI combined with cell phone technology allows individuals to keep live interpreters at their fingertips. Basically, this is how to make a three-way phone call with an interpreter from an iPhone or Android cell phone. First, call the interpreter. Say hello and introduce the topic of the conversation. Second, tap “add call” with the “+” icon button, and call the speaker of the other language. Third, tap “merge” or “merge calls.” Speak directly to the speaker of the other language. Pause regularly to allow the interpreter to interpret consecutively. When finished, wrap up the conversation with the speaker of the other language, and let the interpreter know that the phone call is complete. Tap the name of each speaker to end each call one at a time, or tap “end” to hang up on all of the calls at once.
