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, you 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. They might surface at a doctor’s office, a school, a bank, or simply on the street

Interpreters available on-demand
We realized after (the last election) that we had a gap, particularly with American Sign Language. We adopted mobile interpreting to overcome language barriers that might arise at the polls. By doing that, it’s taken away all excuses because we want everybody to get out and vote.

‘I see myself’
Watch how a prominent hospital in one of the world’s most diverse regions is deploying mobile interpreting.
We all know that doctors sometimes have difficulty conveying medical terminology to patients. Imagine how insurmountable that challenge must feel when doctor and patient literally speak different languages.
This challenge is particularly acute in California’s Monterey County, an agricultural region where nearly half of the 433,000 residents speak a language other than English at home. Of the county’s 177,000 Spanish speakers, 56 percent are considered limited English proficient.
Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula has had to be creative in addressing this challenge, which is why they were among the nation’s earliest adopters in implementing on-demand mobile interpreting.
