OPI. How to talk (now) when you can’t speak.

Over 72% of the world does not speak English. In addition, many countries in Asia and Africa—such as Nigeria, India and the Philippines — use English as their business, education or broadcasting language – and often native speakers cannot easily understand foreigners’ accents. Plus, in the US, millions of immigrants speak little or no English.

In many cases, an immediate conversation can help…

seal a deal
negotiate a contract
resolve issues with limited-English employees
obtain critical supplies from an overseas vendor
talk to a non-English client about an urgent problem
help diagnose a medical emergency …

…and more.

Over-the-Phone interpreting (OPI) solves these and many other issues. 

Using a toll-free number and a PIN, OPI connects you within seconds to a professional telephone interpreter so you can hold a three-way conversation …. either remotely or by putting the interpreter on speakerphone if your non-English person is in your office.

Available 365/24/ 7 in over 100 languages and dialects, all OPI interpreters are vetted, trained, know Business and Healthcare terminology, and maintain 100% confidentiality.

Rates are low at around $1/minute, depending on the kind of organization (nonprofit, government, private sector, etc.) you are, plus a minor monthly Admin charge (between $15 and $50) to prepare call documentation and depending on how many calls you make. And with no monthly subscription, No usage = No billing. Very simple!

If you prefer to host a Zoom meeting, we can provide interpreters for that also (preferably with two-three days’ notice)…as well as for on-site meetings or large conferences, anywhere in the nation or the world.

While verbal communication is difficult enough, written signs overseas can also be unclear, as in these wonderful examples:

  • Welcom Turist. We spik Inglish.
  • Grilled Sexual Harassment.
  • Spring onion 2.95 / Fresh herpes 0.95
Obviouslly, those group did not rely on Auerbach International to provide professional translations with guaranteed accuracy in over 120 languages using methods perfected over three decades.
