ASTA-USA Includes New Technology to Make Foreign Language Interpretation Virtually Instantaneous, for Phone or Video Meetings

TRANSLATION SERVICES PROVIDER ASTA-USA ( today announces the inclusion of new technology to make acquiring a human interpreter at a moment's notice easy and affordable.

Since its foundation in 1987, ASTA-USA has been providing professional translation and interpretation services to corporations, organizations, government departments, and individuals across the United States and beyond.

While the skillsets of ASTA-USA's 13,000 in-house and contracted translators and interpreters have always been available for businesspeople with multinational dealings, ASTA-USA has now incorporated ingenious telephony network technology to make booking an interpreter much easier.

Booking a live, human interpreter in a matter of seconds, by phone or computer, affordably—and 24/7/365

  1. Dial a toll-free number
  2. Enter your assigned identification number
  3. Select the applicable language

From there, the interpreter will welcome the users and initiate the conversation. Billing is per minute; there is no ongoing contract, commitment, nor subscription.

Video meetings with a knowledgeable, presentable, human interpreter

For video meetings, ASTA-USA will arrange one or more interpreters to join the teleconference. The technology used here is dependent on the user's preference such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Skype, FaceTime, etc.

Users may take comfort in the fact that ASTA-USA interpreters will be appropriately dressed for business, and with neutral or nondescript backgrounds on the call.

Native-speaking interpreters, vetted for complete confidentiality

Just as with ASTA-USA translators, the interpreters are native speaking in the 'target'—or foreign—language and typically educated to bachelor's degree level or further. They are also vetted, and background checked for confidentiality.

VP of Operations Thomas Billick said: "Apart from speed, reliability, and accuracy, confidentiality has always been a watchword for everything we do. We have all the necessary procedures and protocols in place to ensure that what happens on the call, stays on the call.

"We have been providing translation and interpretation services since 1987. But two things have happened: the technology has emerged to make remote interpretation not just possible but significantly easier; and with the unfortunate Covid-19 restrictions, it has also become a necessity…A forced enabler," he continued.

Knowledgeable about the user's field of business

It is obvious that any interpreter must be expertly fluent in the languages in which they operate. However, users can be confident that our interpreters will have subject matter expertise.
