Body language and facial expressions that speak volumes
Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) operates in a similar way to Skype™ or FaceTime™, allowing you to visually converse with our interpreters who have a strong reputation amongst the interpreting community.
We believe that body language and facial expressions can further facilitate empathy and understanding – a key component our team focus on in emergency or sensitive situations.
Easy remote access
With our state-of-the-art WordSynk technology, we can provide one-touch access to our service, wherever you are. With both pre-booked and on-demand access to our VRI services on your computer, tablet or smartphone – there is no need to schedule an appointment or account for travel arrangements.
Swift connection time
Speed of service is crucial in any industry, especially in a crisis or emergency scenario and sometimes the face-to-face element is also crucial. WordSynk Interpretation enables connection speeds of less than 3 minutes for video remote interpreting, enabling you to access the service on demand, as and when you need it.
We understand that in certain scenarios, such as during sensitive conversations, it is important to have the face-to-face interaction even if its virtual. With video remote interpreting, we break down the language and geographical barriers by connecting you to multilingual support, directly to your video-enabled device.
Video sign language
For deaf and hard of hearing individuals who communicate through British Sign Language (BSL), video remote interpreting offers an unbeatable alternative to onsite interpretation and provides an emergency solution in more urgent scenarios. With a growing network of BSL linguists, video remote interpreting is a popular, cost effective and efficient solution.
Stringent recruitment and vetting processes
The safety of our clients and a quality experience is our priority. For your peace of mind, every interpreter has passed a rigorous security process including an Enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check and builds a record of achievement with thebigword, demonstrating their experience and qualifications.
