Our society is becoming more complex and multilingual.  As our nation’s foreign-born population is expected to nearly double over the next several decades, nearly half of these individuals will lack English proficiency. This means that a doctor’s visit, parent-teacher conference, or trip to the bank will likely prove stressful as they attempt to communicate.

 As an organization that aims to provide an excellent experience regardless of language or culture, it is vital that we are able to deliver language access wherever and whenever it is needed. LanguageLine provides on-demand access to more than 14,000 professional interpreters in 240-plus languages via three formats: mobile, video, and phone.

Coming Soon for Richmond - Mobile. The LanguageLine mobile app puts the power of nearly 14,000 interpreters in users’ pockets. It makes professional linguists available on-demand with just the touch of a button. 

With a cellular signal or WiFi and a smartphone or tablet, the
LanguageLine mobile app allows users to instantly reach a video or audio-only interpreter regardless of location.

LanguageLine’s on-demand mobile interpreting is MDM-compatible and features an intuitive interface, making it easy to deploy across largescale and geographically dispersed teams with minimal training.

Coming Soon for Richmond - Video. People tend to think of interpretation as a transaction, swapping one word for another much as one would exchange currency. At LanguageLine, they think of interpretation as a profoundly human experience. More than transactional, it should be transformational - both for their clients and the communities they serve.

LanguageLine InSight Video Interpreting is transformational technology. LanguageLine video remote interpreting is available via tablet, smartphone, or laptop. It allows limited-English speakers, as well as the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing, to feel heard and seen by another person.  Available within seconds at the touch of a button, LanguageLine’s award-
winning video remote interpreting is available in the top 41 most requested languages, including American and British Sign Language.

Telephone. LanguageLine was founded in 1982 by a police officer who sought to overcome language barriers he experienced in the field. Today they are proud to be an essential partner in managing and growing modern organizations that welcome all people, regardless of language, culture, or ability.

LanguageLine has the experience, team, and technology to convert the complexities of our nation’s linguistic landscape into a powerful asset for Richmond Community Schools.

LanguageLine is the largest provider of over-the-phone interpretation – larger than their next 10 competitors combined, with over 14,000 highly skilled professional interpreters available on demand. This means we can scale to your needs, no matter how unexpected they may be. We handle roughly 40 million interactions per year, answering each call within just seconds.
