What Is Legal Over-the-Phone Interpretation (Legal OPI)?
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.
