Over the Phone Interpreting
Over the Phone Interpreting
A very bold statement but we stand behind it:
Absolute Translations’ Over the Phone Interpreting (OPI) LINK platform is built upon the most advanced telephonic communication software systems available for Interpreting communications today.
The good news is that it is also the most affordable telephonic/OPI service platform available on the market today.
On Demand and Scheduled OPI allows users located anywhere to quickly connect to a qualified professional interpreter within 10 seconds at a fraction of the cost of traditional onsite interpreting.
OPI – Access an interpreter within seconds
Our LINK Platform offers a next-generation cloud-based OPI system with high-fidelity audio connections across nearly any imaginable communication system and device. It allows you to connect to a qualified professional interpreter within seconds and will drastically cut your costs in the process.
It is a great alternative to onsite interpreting and particularly beneficial when onsite interpreting is not feasible or practical, for instance in rural or regional areas in Australia. You will be able to connect to highly trained and qualified interpreters previously unavailable due to location, limited availability or time constraints at only a fraction of the cost.
With access to our Absolute LINK Platform of 1000+ qualified interpreters worldwide, you can address your language needs instantly.
Schedule your phone interpreter through our LINK Platform ahead of your appointment. Pre-booking your interpreter will ensure all specific requirements can be fulfilled and that the best interpreter can be scheduled for your appointment.
Pre-booking an interpreter is recommended when the assignment requires specific knowledge such as specialist medical terminology or when the pool of interpreters for a specific rare language is limited.
Scheduling your interpreter will also allow you to share background material to the interpreter so they can be prepared for the session. This will ensure your actual interpreting time is managed most efficiently saving you time and costs.
LINK offers a smooth OPI experience while eliminating travel time, mileage fees and wait time, issues often associated with face-to-face interpreting. Getting started with our OPI services is easy, all you need is Internet access and a mobile device or computer; there’s no expensive equipment to rent or purchase.
Over the Phone Interpreting is a great solution for many industries. From business to healthcare and education, OPI provides a unique opportunity to connect your clients and community.

Use our LINK InterpretManager mobile app (available in the iOS app store and Google Play) to perform remote interpreting sessions on the go or in setups where you don’t have access to a computer.
