LUNA Language Services offers telephone interpreting as a convenient and cost-effective way for corporations and businesses to communicate in over 90 spoken foreign languages with people of limited English proficiency. Experienced in legal settings and trained in legal protocol and terminology, our telephone interpreters also can help you bridge cultural gaps for more effective and efficient interactions. When requested, certified interpreters are available in languages for which certification exists. Our phone interpreters are experienced in using the phone to achieve the best possible communication. Whenever possible, the legal appointment should be assessed in advance to determine whether a telephone interpreter is an appropriate replacement for an on-site interpreter. A LUNA coordinator can help talk through the decision, but the following information can serve as guidance.
