Over-the-Phone Interpretation

Over-the-Phone Interpreting

Over-the-phone interpreting (OPI) is a form of remote interpreting that allows individuals who do not speak the same language to communicate over the phone with the assistance of a professional interpreter. OPI is a cost-effective and convenient solution for situations where in-person interpretation is not feasible or practical, such as when a language barrier is encountered unexpectedly, or when interpretation services are needed outside of normal business hours.
