AT&T Inc. (T) is the only provider that supplies an on-demand translation service on mobile devices that efficiently knocks down language barriers and opens up opportunities for millions.
Recently, the company developed a new on-demand interpreter solution in collaboration with Language Line Services, a company that has expertise in providing telephonic interpretation as well as language solutions. This is a service whereby your language will be automatically identified and an interpreter will be put on the line when you call. This could be the first step in breaking down communication barriers in a significant way. The product is called the On Demand Interpreter solution. The system is easy for users to utilize. All they have to do is press *4. Then, through speed dial technology and the efforts of an On Demand Interpreter that selects their language, they will be through to a professional interpreter within seconds. The service is available in 170 different languages, and interpreters for each of those languages will be on call all day every day.
This technology may have a fairly wide reach. For one thing, it could streamline emergency response services. Medical facilities and government services, such as the police, could be vastly more effective in cases where they will be able to get hold of a professional interpreter immediately. Emergency situations will be easier to cope with and lives will be saved. In addition, it will open up business channels for many companies who will now have the opportunity to stop limiting their activities to companies and individuals that speak good English.To continue reading, click here.
