The challenges faced by corporations with multilingual employees

Our newest recruit has their headquarters in London but offices in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Australia and USA. They had been relying on in-house bilingual German and English speakers and when the need arose, a network of face-to-face interpreters who would travel to the various offices to provide interpreting support.

Our client estimated a CO2 amount of 0.031 t per 100 kl travelled by the on-site German interpreters. As part of their calculation, they also estimated how much lead-time was required in order to book a face-to-face interpreter. On average, 2 days.

Benefits of signing up to the German telephone interpreting service

  • Accessibility: The German telephone interpreting service would provide instant access for their employees to qualified interpreters regardless of geographical location. This accessibility would be invaluable, especially in urgent situations where immediate language assistance was required. Whether in a remote area or in the centre of a city, as long as they had a telephone line or a mobile device, their team would be able to access interpretation services promptly.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: There would be no travel expenses involved for German interpreters, nor any need to allocate physical meeting spaces. This would make organising departmental budgets more efficient without compromising on language support quality. 10 minutes would be the minimum charge for interpreting time by telephone as opposed to 2 hours with a physical presence.
  • Time-Efficiency: Using the German telephone interpreting service would eliminate the need for scheduling and waiting for interpreters to arrive at a physical location. With just a phone call away, their team would be able to connect with interpreters within minutes, reducing downtime and streamlining communication processes. This time efficiency was particularly attractive to our global client.
  • Reduction of carbon footprint: By eliminating the need for the German interpreters to travel to physical locations, the telephone interpreting service would significantly reduce carbon emissions associated with transportation. The environmental impact of commuting, whether by car, train, or plane, would be mitigated, contributing to a greener, more sustainable approach to language support.
