Industries That Benefit From Interpretation Services
Face-to-Face interpretation is critical to the success of a variety of industries and services. At Access 2 Interpreters, we train our professional interpreters in a wide selection of industry-specific terminology and jargon to ensure clear understanding, no matter the language.
- Hospitals, Nursing Homes and Health Care Organizations- In healthcare, every second is vital, which is why medical interpretation is so important. Medical interpreters help lower the risk of misdiagnosis, incorrect information, and difficulty following complex treatment plans. Medical interpreters also help patients stay fully informed and feel more comfortable with the care they are receiving.
- Courts and Attorneys- When in court, it’s necessary to understand everything that’s being said in order to accurately express yourself and the truth. A legal interpreter ensures that the judge, jury, defendant, and everyone involved are able to react the same way to non-English speaking participants. Legal and Court interpreters also allow a non-English speaking defendant to understand what’s going on in the court and during the trial.
- Law Enforcement Agencies- Whether they’re responding to a call or testifying in court, law enforcement interpreters are key to ensuring that police officers can do their jobs properly. Law enforcement interpreters allow officers to speak with non-English speaking people to obtain information and communicate clearly.
- Social Services Agencies- Social services often work closely with non-English or Limited-English Proficient households and clients. When they do, they rely on social service interpreters to make sure that everything is understood.
- Secondary Schools- While English as Second Language classes do wonders in schools, they aren’t all-encompassing. School interpretation services are important to ensure that students are understanding and getting the most out of their education.
- Manufacturers- Manufacturing is a global process. From international factories to small-batch workshops, final products may involve pieces from every continent. This makes communication all the more important. Manufacturing interpreters understand the unique lexicon of manufacturing and business, so that communication is clear and precise.
- Retailers- Retail and hospitality are inherently international professions, as people from all around the world interact with them daily. This makes retail interpreters absolutely necessary for these industries to function and thrive.
