What is Telephone Interpreting?

Telephone interpreting connects individuals who don’t speak a common language with a human interpreter over the phone. It is a consecutive form of interpretation in which a native-speaking interpreter converts the message spoken in one language to the target language after the speaker is finished so that the speaker and listener(s) can understand one another.

Due to its convenient and cost-effective nature, telephone interpreting is one of the most widely-used forms of interpretation available to businesses using the telephone as the primary method of communication, allowing for effective multilingual communication within seconds.

Wordspath’s phone interpretation services are fast, convenient, and highly secure to help break language barriers wherever and whenever you or the party you call needs it.

Take Advantages of Telephone Translation Services

Phone translation service is sought-after because of its convenience and cost-effectiveness. Interpreter services over the phone are more preferred than interpreting on-site or face to face, especially when:

primarily communicating via phone
Primarily communicating via phone

Translation via phone is naturally the preferred option for individuals and organizations primarily using telephone communication. Translation services by phone are ideal for contact centers dealing with large volumes of multilingual phone calls.

handling emergencies
Handling Emergencies

Telephonic interpretation services are more easily accessible than a professional in-person translator in emergent circumstances when instant access to an interpreter is needed. Anytime, your client who speaks a foreign language may pose an urgent question.

remaining anonymous
Remaining Anonymous

Considering different cultural norms, religious backgrounds, or sensitive topics involved in calls, the individuals may prefer to stay anonymous or not have an in-person interpreter by their sides, eliminating the risks of exposing private information.

facing geographical limitations
Facing geographical limitations

Phone interpreter services are an effective way to go in locations with no access to a qualified interpreter. Multilingual communication can still take place as scheduled with immediate interpretation support via phone.
