When And Where Is Over The Phone Interpretation (OPI) Used?



In the American legal system, everyone has the right to equal justice regardless of the language they speak. Sometimes, court interpreters cannot be present. When this happens, professional OPI interpreters with legal Subject Matter Expertise (SME) can help litigants and defendants with Limited-English Proficiency (LEP) navigate the court system and safeguard their due process rights.


OPI interpreters are a critical part of the US healthcare system. Medical practitioners have the legal and ethical responsibility to ensure equal access to care, and language should never be a barrier. There are many scenarios in which OPI interpreters specialized in healthcare are preferred over in-person. If the healthcare facility or patient is in a remote location or involved in an emergency, OPI is a welcomed and much-needed service.


Within the United States, schools nationwide must ensure all English Learners (ELs) have equal access to education. Family members with Limited English Proficiency (LEP) also have the right to communicate with school personnel in their preferred language. When a call home is warranted or in an emergency, OPI enhances communication and strengthens trust.


For businesses of all sizes, effective communication is critical to success. OPI ensures effective communication with your diverse customers, building trust and strengthening customer relationships, whether for business travel, meetings, or unexpected customer encounters.
