One of the strongest characteristics that separates Global Village Language and Cultural Solutions from our competitors is that we utilize an independent contractor model . This connects us with a virtual network of thousands of U.S.-based interpreters and allows us to provide rapid connection times, seamlessly handle unexpected spikes in call volumes, and offer the greatest volume of interpreters ready to take your call. At any given time, we have approximately 25% more interpreters on call than anticipated call volume requires. Using contract interpreters means we only pay them for the actual time they spend on the phone interpreting. This model allows us to keep our costs low, so we can afford to work with the highest quality interpreters in the country and compensate them duly, which further contributes to our consistently high interpreter rates.
We carefully select professional interpreters who possess comprehensive language proficiency with industry-specific expertise. This enables us to provide accurate, effective services, which minimizes call times and reduces the potential for liability.
Global Village Language and Cultural Solutions utilizes only highly qualified, professional interpreters with at least 2 years of confirmed experience and 40 hours of training prior to working with our organization. After our interpreters pass the minimum qualifications, all of our interpreters must complete a medical interpreter testing process that guarantees they are highly skilled in industry-specific terminology and competent in diverse medical settings. Prior to making any calls for us, the interpreters are required to complete HIPAA training and certification on an annual basis.
