On-site Interpretation

In healthcare, legal, financial and many other industries/situations, native speakers aren’t enough to communicate critical information or complex rules and regulations without special training. That’s where we can help!

Consecutive Vs. Simultaneous On-Site Interpretation

Typically, simultaneous interpreting is offered for large groups and conference events, while consecutive interpreting is offered for one-on-one settings. DTS offers both consecutive and simultaneous interpreting.

Whether your visitor simply wants to find out more about what you do, or your medical employee needs to understand key requirements of an urgent situation, DTS on-site interpretation provides a solution to language barriers.

Phone Interpretation Vs.
On-Site Interpretation

Phone interpreting is preferred when:

  • A professional in-person interpreter is not available.
  • Individuals may prefer to not have another person in the room, depending on circumstance, cultural circumstances or religious backgrounds.
  • Telephone is the primary or only means of communication.
  • Time is a factor and immediate interpretation is needed.

On-site interpreting is preferred when:


  • Communications are of a sensitive nature.
  • There is high interaction amongst two or more participants.
  • There is a complex dialogue exchange.
  • Young children or those with underdeveloped language skills are involved.
  • You need to fulfill the American with Disabilities Act of 1990.
  • Individuals with a secondary disability that impedes their ability to utilize technology are involved.

DTS provides on-site Interpretation services. The service allows our clients to access an interpreter in more than 240 languages on a 24/7 basis, 365 days of the year.

The interpreters number over 4000 and are based all over the world. The interpreters are professional linguists – they work as professional interpreters and, quite often, translators (of the written word). They have a minimum of 3 years of consecutive interpreting experience and interpret on behalf of hospitals, banks, healthcare providers, airlines and many other business sectors. 

All of DTS’ interpreters are native speakers of the languages they interpret, sign up to a strict code of conduct, a robust confidentiality agreement, are HIPAA trained and compliant, and trained by an in-house training team for 40 hours per year. As such our customers may be assured of absolute confidentiality when they are speaking through a DTS interpreter.
