Video Remote Interpreting

Imagine waking up in a hospital where you don’t speak the same language as your caregivers. You’re sick, you’re scared, and you’re alone. Then someone brings in a tablet or smartphone, presses a button, and up comes someone who looks you in the eye and speaks your language. Through this interpreter, your doctors and nurses are suddenly able to understand not just what you say, but what you mean.

The advantages of LanguageLine InSight Video Interpreting®

People tend to think of interpretation as a transaction, swapping one word for another much as one would exchange currency. At LanguageLine, we think of interpretation as a profoundly human experience. More than transactional, it should be transformational - both for our clients and the communities they serve.

LanguageLine InSight Video Interpreting is transformational technology. Our video remote interpreting is available via tablet, smartphone, or laptop. It allows limited-English speakers, as well as the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing, to feel heard and seen by another person.

Available within seconds at the touch of a button, LanguageLine’s award-winning video remote interpreting is available in the top 41 most requested languages, including American and British Sign Language.

Interpreters available on-demand

One of our little guys has been with us most of his life. He’s deaf. Prior to video interpreting, he was very closed off. Once we got (LanguageLine Video), we were going up and down the hallways with him. It made him open up a lot more. There is a different connection you get when a patient can look an interpreter in the eye. We’ve been pleasantly surprised at the extent to which video interpreters share the same compassion for our patients that we do.

  • Mobility and stability: The rolling cart has a 23-inch base with five wheels and lockable casters for maximum stability and ease of mobility.

‘It’s like a miracle’

Watch how a California hospital in a highly diverse community is using on-demand video interpreting to elevate patient care.

Alex Gonzalez is a registered nurse in the oncology unit at Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System. SVMH is a public hospital that provides quality health services to patients of all ages throughout Monterey County, an agricultural hub where a quarter of the population are non-citizens and more than 40 percent are native Spanish speakers.

Gonzalez uses InSight® to perform assessments, explain new medication, and get consent for surgery, among other tasks.

“Communication is key,” he said. “Trusting in your healthcare team is critical, and we consider (LanguageLine Video) to be part of that team.”
