Getting Your Website Translated

It is no longer the norm to accept English as the universal language and, as such, it should be of primary importance being able to meet the language needs of your targeted demographic. Languages such as Spanish, Arabic, Mandarin, and French continue to grow exponentially, with just under a billion people speaking Mandarin alone. This is not to be overlooked as the potential for growth in these markets, as well as locally, is tremendous and can significantly impact the profitability of your organization.

The Worth of a Professional Interpreter

The absence of an interpreter, whether trained or untrained, at a session where the individuals involved do not speak the same language can also be very risky. It is not correct to assume that a basic level of understanding of a language is sufficient for clear communication to occur. Prudent individuals will therefore not risk the credibility of their business or jeopardize the welfare of the people they serve by not making the required investment of using the services of a professional interpreter.

Video Remote Interpreting Services in Hospitals: Patient Outcomes, Budget Concerns, and Technological Developments

The need for high quality interpreters in hospitals is now more pressing than ever. Our society is diversifying at an incremental rate and these citizens have an equal right to proper care. Too often, patients that do not speak the local language are forced to rely on “interpreters of convenience” like relatives and hospital staff or worse, they are left without being able to fully communicate with their physician. Language discordance can increase hospital stay and cause poorer patient care. This can have significant financial ramifications. In order to minimize the effect of language discordance, hospitals need to provide specialized interpreters to their patients. The increased budgetary restraints imposed on public health providers coupled with a paradigm of risk management has made this need even greater. Costs can be cut by providing high quality care to all patients and mitigate the risk associated with miscommunication. The development of cost-effective technologies in the language industry has simplified the once complex and expensive interpreting service delivery.
