In today’s fast-paced, globalized world, the need for efficient and accurate communication across languages and cultures is more pressing than ever. One innovative solution that addresses this challenge is Video Remote Interpreting (VRI).
We focus on American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation as well as spoken languages such as Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese, Korean, and Russian.
This blog post aims to provide an extensive and authoritative overview of video remote interpreting services, focusing particularly on the United States, from Oregon to New York.
What is Video Remote Interpreting?
Video Remote Interpreting, often abbreviated as VRI, is a cutting-edge language service that utilizes high-speed internet, video, and audio technology to facilitate real-time communication between individuals who speak different languages.
It is an ideal solution when an on-site interpreter is either not available or not practical, allowing for high-quality, real-time interpretation at the touch of a button.
How Does Video Remote Interpreting Work?
The process of video remote interpreting is fairly straightforward. It typically requires a computer or a mobile device with high-speed internet and a camera. Clients who require an interpreter can connect virtually with a qualified language specialist through a secure, encrypted platform.
The video remote interpreter then translates the spoken language in real-time, ensuring accurate and effective communication between the parties involved.
Here’s an overview of how it works:
- VRI utilizes high-quality video and audio connections to connect an interpreter remotely to the conversation.
- High-speed, reliable internet is required on both sides for clear video and audio. The interpreter connects through a computer, tablet, or smartphone application.
- The interpreter can see and hear the individuals speaking through video conferencing technology and provides real-time verbal interpretation back and forth seamlessly.
- VRI provides the flexibility of remote interpreting without requiring the interpreter to be physically present. This contrasts with in-person interpreting where the interpreter is on-site.
- Advanced video and audio technology ensures smooth and lag-free connections between all parties for natural conversations as if speaking directly.
- VRI allows interpretations to be accessed on-demand when needed instead of requiring pre-scheduled in-person appointments.
- Professional interpreters deliver the same high-quality interpretation remotely as they would in person. Their skills ensure the accurate conveyance of messages virtually.
- VRI provides a quick and flexible solution for multilingual communication, especially for unexpected language needs or situations requiring immediate interpreting access.
Benefits of Video Remote Interpreting
Video remote interpreting offers several advantages over traditional in-person interpreting services:
- More convenient than in-person: With video remote interpreting, there is no need to schedule interpreters to travel to your location. Interpreters can join calls or video conferences remotely, providing services on-demand whenever needed. This saves time and logistical challenges with coordinating in-person interpreter schedules.
- Saves travel time and costs: By using remote interpreters, organizations eliminate expenses associated with interpreter transportation and travel. There is no need to cover costs for mileage, parking, hotels, flights, meals or other incidentals required for in-person interpreting.
- Provides quick access to interpreters: Through video and telecommunications technology, interpreters can be accessed almost instantly. This rapid connection allows organizations to scale up services as needed, securing qualified interpreters in minutes rather than days or weeks.
