Hospitals and clinics in culturally diverse countries such as the UAE often face the need to overcome language barriers between healthcare professionals and patients. The best way to do it is by finding the right medical interpreting services.
Most hospitals cannot rely on in-house interpreters for every language. This is why many choose to outsource their interpreting needs to language service providers.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, interpreters cannot easily provide on-site language services.
Video remote interpreting, on the other hand, can be used in compliance with social distancing measures. VRI is not only safer, but it offers many advantages:
The Rise of Video Remote Interpreting
Video Remote Interpreting connects patients and healthcare workers with professional interpreters through the use of any connected device, such as smartphones, PCs, and tablets.
Unlike over-the-phone interpreting, VRI takes into account the body language of the parties communicating, for a more accurate, seamless, and empathic dialogue, avoiding dangerous mistranslations.
Video remote interpreting also features advantages in terms of quality, convenience, and efficiency:
- Hospitals and clinics can have access to the best medical interpreters worldwide, even for rare languages, without having to rely on local availability;
- Interpreting platforms often feature on-demand services, giving immediate access to linguists without notice;
- VRI cuts travel, accommodation, and equipment costs, saving up to 70% on traditional on-site interpreting.
Medical Conferences and Meetings
Remote interpreting is not only one of the best solutions for foreign patients, but it is also a more and more commonly adopted mode for conferences, seminars, and meetings, held both on-site and online.
Remote Simultaneous Interpretation offers the same seamless quality as traditional simultaneous interpreting without the need to install soundproof booths and infrared transmitters. Interpreters in a remote location translate in real time the message of the speaker, while the audience can select their preferred language channel from an app on their smartphone.
