When Lives Are on the Line, Every Meaning Matters

Whether humanitarian workers are providing food and shelter after a domestic natural disaster or they are providing medical assistance during an international crisis, clear multilingual communication is critical to get the job done. Even domestic crises can involve major language barriers between relief workers and those in crisis.

When time is of the essence and it isn’t possible to have on-site interpreters on the front lines, there are still important resources available to humanitarian groups. Telephonic and video-conferencing interpretation services from Akorbi can help make a difference in the lives of those affected by crisis. Our team is dedicated to providing the highest quality services to every client who needs us.

The Importance of Remote Interpretation in Crisis

When Hurricane Katrina struck the American Gulf Coast, millions of Americans were impacted by the life-threatening storm. Among these Americans were people who spoke many different languages with limited abilities to communicate in English. Other Americans affected by Katrina were deaf or mute, and they had to rely on American Sign Language to communicate.

In situations such as this, critical information must be quickly and effectively communicated to victims of crisis. In the early stages of a humanitarian crisis, relief workers are often unequipped to bridge the language gap and get the job done. Remote interpretation services are the answer to this problem, and Akorbi is always here to help.
