By Camille Bouvet, Lingolet Intern

What is video remote interpreting (VRI)?

Video remote interpreting (VRI) combines the benefits of face-to-face interpretation with the on-demand nature of Over-the-Phone Interpretation (OPI).

It is instant, flexible, and cost-effective. 

VRI works by using videoconferencing equipment at both locations. Remote interpreting is an alternative to traditional interpretation which is in increasingly more demand from businesses of every sector who want to address their audiences in particular languages. 

Benefits of Video Remote Interpreting :  

- Pay per usage.

- Face-to-face interpreters charge for a half or full day. 

- You pay for VRI interpreters only for the actual minutes. 

- Universal location : Available worldwide. 

- Secure and Private. 

VRI is HIPAA and CCPA compliant for privacy Available On-Demand: VRI is available 24/7/365. This is an excellent solution when you need interpreters in the evening, on weekends, during holidays, or in rural locations.
