Summary:Do you want to learn a new set of skills? Start a second career? Create a new stream of revenue for your business adding a new service? Provide an essential social service? Find out how telephone interpreting is changing the world of communication as we know it.
Description
In 90 minutes, open your world to a new profession as a telephone interpreter. The market is estimated at 600 million in the US plus 400 million in the rest of the world. If you speak two (or more) languages FLUENTLY, you may become a teleinterpreter.

Attendees will understand what over-the-phone-interpreting (OPI) entails, as well as the skills and tools needed to develop an edge in this new profession. It is quickly replacing on-site interpreting to assist communication between doctors and patients, call centers and consumers, credit card companies and their users, insurance companies and claimants, investors and foreign partners, individuals in global social networks, and many others, including the public and government agencies - even the courts system.

Please find the webinar video recording here.
