Video Remote Interpretation
Interpreters Unlimited’s Video Remote Interpretation (VRI) is ideal for those who do not have the time or budget to schedule an on-site interpreter. Utilizing this service will enable communication with patients or clients who have limited English proficiency or who are Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing, even though an interpreter is not physically present.
Video interpretation services are growing in popularity because of the simplicity and convenience. This technology enables hospitals, legal firms and other businesses to service their client or patient when an in-person interpreter is not available. Our technology is HIPAA-compliant and cloud-based and comes with a user-friendly interface so office staff can quickly set-up the remote appointment(s). This ease of availability is especially important under unexpected or emergency circumstances.
During VRI appointments, interpretation occurs consecutively. Consecutive interpretation is when the interpreter listens to what is said before converting to the target language. This interpreting method is best suited for smaller groups because of the stop-and-go flow of conversation.
ODI – On-Demand Interpreter – combines the visual aspect of in-person interpretation with the convenience of remote interpretation, providing an efficient and cost-effective solution for clients who require (or prefer) face-to-face communication with the interpreter.
