Remote video translation uses video phones or webcams to provide spoken and sign language translation services. This is a basic emergency service when a private interpreter is unable to appear immediately in court or a hospital.
VRI is an affordable alternative to private translation. In addition to lower prices, customers can easily access interpreters, so that is expected to increase soon. If you’re looking for more information about video remote interpreting check this out.

What is a remote video translation service?
Access to a remote video translation service is the same as using a telephone translation service. The customer creates an account, dials a specific number, enters a language code, and is connected to an interpreter in seconds.
With VRI, the interpreter can see the interpreter. This service allows two- or three-way calls. One benefit is that the interpreter can see the client's facial expressions, hand movements, and body language, which gives the interpreter clues about the client's feelings and addresses some cultural sensitivities.
Remote video translation is useful for the deaf. The person listening may be in the same room as the person using sign language. If a deaf person signs, the interpreter will provide a translation for the hearing and speaking person and a sign for the deaf.
Remote video translation services do not require any unique means of communication. Like other translators, remote video translators are certified. Most of them are experts in this field, which ensures the accuracy of the client's interpretation.
