Frequently Asked Questions

If you can’t find an answer to your question here, our team is happy to help. You can reach out via the form below. 

When you schedule on-site interpreting services, Sorenson will send an interpreter in person to your location to provide face-to-face interpreting support. On-site interpreting is the most interactive and effective way to work with interpreters, but it is also the most costly and may require consideration of interpreter travel and accommodations. VRI stands for Video Remote Interpreting. It’s a solution that allows you to use an interpreter over high-speed internet with a camera and video screen so the participants and interpreter can see and hear each other. Sorenson offers both scheduled and on-demand VRI services, which combine convenience and cost effectiveness. 

When you request on-site interpreting service, our team will consult with you about your needs to determine interpreter staffing. During the assignment, the interpreter will position themselves for visibility with Deaf participants and where they can hear and be heard by hearing participants to effectively relay all communication between languages.  

Sight translation is a type of interpreting in which the interpreter converts the language of text to a user’s primary language. For example, in the case of sight translation for Deaf individuals, that could be relaying the content of written English in ASL. While many Deaf individuals read and write in the same languages hearing people speak, that is often not their primary language, and they may not have the same level of fluency that they have in sign language.
