Over-the-phone interpreting (OPI) is a service that falls under the Remote Interpreting Services. Instead of interpreting face-to-face, a phone interpreter, as the term implies, is available to provide language services over the phone. The interpreter may be in another room in the same building or any location.

  • Available 24/7
  • Expert linguists and native speakers
  • Cost-effective
  • Trusted translation partners
  • Certified for specific requirements
  • Available worldwide

Legal Over-the-Phone interpretation prevents the court or law firm from being liable due to non-professional or inaccurate interpreting. Legal Interpreters are qualified and certified to interpret for you during: 

  • Lawyer-client Meetings
  • Depositions/EBTs
  • Legal Consultations
  • Hearings & Trials
  • Mediations Arbitrations
  • Sworn Statements
  • Examinations Under Oath
  • Correctional Facility Visits

Legal Over-the-Phone Interpreters translate conversations from one language to another quickly and efficiently via the phone. They assist lawyers and other court officials in understanding and conveying the messages of LEP, deaf and hard hearing populations.

The Legal interpreter preserves the meaning, tone, and context without adding or leaving anything spoken out of the conversation or statement. He or she has the same certification as the court interpreter. If you prefer to keep visual cues, you can try legal video-remote interpretation.
