What’s not to like about telephone interpreting service?

There are so many advantages to telephone interpreting over traditional forms of interpreting. Instant access by telephone to interpreters covering over 150 languages for a start.

We have compiled a compelling list of the advantages of signing up to our telephone interpreting service:

● A telephone interpreting call takes no time at all to set-up. Once you have an account with us, all you need to hand is your PIN number, the telephone interpreting hotline and a …telephone. No need to book a conference room and no need to ensure that on-site parking is available for your interpreter.

● There are no geographical limitations. You can be based in Swindon and your client can be based in Italy. One of our telephone interpreters will join you on the line within minutes of your request.

● Little or no notice is required. Since we offer our telephone interpreting service 24/7, 365 days of the year, you can pick up the phone at any time and have interpreting support whatever time zone you or your client is in. The instant access is particularly useful for any time sensitive or unexpected situations – perhaps at the GP surgery, hospital, police station etc.

● The service is more anonymous. For situations where a higher degree of anonymity might be preferred, telephone interpreting is the obvious option. It also means that a telephone interpreter is never in any direct contact with a vulnerable individual.

● Telephone interpreting is very cost-effective. With starting costs as low as £1.50 + VAT per minute and a minimum charge of only 10 minutes, using the telephone interpreting service will often cost much less than having a face-to-face interpreter on-site. With on-site interpreting, it is necessary to cover the costs of the time it takes to travel to the venue and the actual travelling costs in terms of mileage or public transport.
