webinar smartphone interpreting

As with any new technology, smartphone-based interpreting raises fresh questions. For example:

  • When is a smartphone an appropriate interpreting modality?
  • Which staff members should have access to the interpreting app?
  • How do I manage my language budget when access to interpretation is more widespread?
  • How do I secure buy-in from decision makers?
  • What are best practices for implementing mobile interpreting?

Why Mobile Interpreting?

The need for language access has grown unpredictable as our society has become more complex and multilingual. By assisting every individual regardless of their language, culture, or ability, caregivers deliver higher value experiences at the moment of need. The challenge is that these “moments of need” arise with increasing frequency as we become more linguistically diverse.

On-demand access to qualified medical interpreters improves patient experience and compliance while increasing staff productivity. Most significantly, it reduces health disparities for our most vulnerable populations.

Mobile interpreting extends these benefits by putting the power of thousands of interpreters and hundreds of languages into caregivers’ pockets. This ensures that interpreter services are available, wherever and whenever they are needed.
