Over-The-Phone Interpreting

Over-the-phone interpreting (OPI), also known as telephonic interpreting, is the act of translating one language to another over the phone. This can be done via a 2 or 3-way call and happens between you, the interpreter, and the party you are trying to reach. It is especially useful when you have an immediate or last-minute need for interpreting services you were not able to pre-schedule or when the person you need to communicate with is in another location.

How Is Affordable Language Services Different From Other Language Service Providers?

We do not require our customers to own any special equipment to use our services. Many other over-the-phone interpreting companies who use this app (or similar ones) offer the first year for free. After that, they then charge a monthly minimum and maintenance fees. We don’t. When you go through Affordable Language Services, you’ll only get charged for the calls that you actually make.  That way, if you go a month or two without using the app, you’re not paying for services you aren’t using. There are no maintenance fees, no expensive updates, and no minimums to pay. Just telephonic interpreting, right when you need it.

The OPI app also offers video remote interpreting capabilities. Sometimes this service is preferred because you are able to use video to read body language and facial expressions. Learn more about our VRI services here.
