Telephonic Interpreting

Telephone interpreting enables the interpreter to deliver interpretation via telephone. The interpreter is added to a conference call. Telephone interpreting may be used in place of on-site interpreting in some cases, especially when no on-site interpreter is readily available at the location where services are needed. However, telephonic interpreting is more commonly used for situations in which all parties who wish to communicate are already speaking to one another via telephone (e.g. applications for insurance or credit cards, inquiries from consumers to businesses, etc.)  

Jane Hu interprets telephonically based on the clients’ needs.  Although it is a less demanding mode of interpreting, it poses its own challenge.  Because the interpreter is unable to see the parties she interprets for, the choice of words and tone in which they are carried become critical.  Jane is able to maneuver with ease between the clients and the LEP (Limited English Proficiency) party, and helps the communication flow smoothly without a beat.  She has used this type of interpreting for many industries including insurance companies, telecommunication companies, medical facilities and law offices and courts.
