When Do I Need an Interpreter?
              Take the guesswork out of communication!

Copyright © 2010 Coda Link, Inc.
An interpreter may be used any time communication is occurring between people who do not share the same language. Interpreters play an intricate role ensuring communication is both accessible and effective.

Can YOU afford to miss 70 to 75 percent of any conversation?
Did you know that only 25 to 30 percent of the spoken words can be lip read due to their phonetic uniqueness and lip reading their words becomes guesswork. Make your communication effective. Call us — we can help!

Interpreters hold a position of trust in their role as linguistic and cultural mediators.

Integrity, professionalism, attitude and image are important core values
