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.
