The over-the-phone system reaches everywhere phones are. It works on land-line phones, smart phones, tablets and computers. It’s powerful, flexible and FAST. Connect in under 30 seconds any time, any day of the year.


Video Remote Interpretation (VRI)

Video interpretation lets you be face to face even with a world between you.


It’s the right choice when seeing is key to understanding. You don’t need special equipment. You can use any computer, smart phone or tablet with a camera.

On-Site Interpretation

Sometimes it’s essential to have a person in the room to make the conversation go well. This is the way communication between languages has been done for centuries.

But today, you can quickly go from needing someone on site to having them there.

The Effectiff app lets you choose the language, the time, and the place. When your interpreter is on the way, you can follow their progress on a map, just as you do with a ride-sharing app.

Our 5,000 linguists specialize in diverse realms of health, law, technology, science, industry, business and defense. No matter what language you need, no matter what sector you represent, our linguists deliver.


Geared Up and Ready

Being ready for you means able to go where and when you need us. If your interpretation needs call for conference/interpreting equipment gear, we have your back.

Standard practice is to rent equipment as needed, but that can take time and be costly. We’ve got it all in-house.

From the sound-proof booths needed for big meetings to smaller units that can fit on a table top, we’re ready to go when you need us.

Nowadays, equipment is designed especially for on-site interpretation. Long-life batteries keep working when wall plugs are out of reach. The booths set up easily and quickly, even by one person. Our units can handle over 100 different language channels at once, all run by your personal technician.

The units transmit using infrared light, not radio, so the signals don’t go through walls. What’s said in your meeting stays in your meeting. Call us for your customized quote today!

We’re packed up and charged up. Just say where and when.
