Is on-site interpreting always the right option?

There are three standard interpreting options: VRI, OPI, and on-site. Due to the needs and preferences of clients, interpreting assignments can vary; therefore, only some interpretation options are a great fit. Choosing the right option depends on purpose, availability, location, and preference.

Interpreting in Orlando, FL

In specific cities, clients will face few resources for particular language requests. Due to the supply-and-demand nature of the interpreting world, some language requests will be easy to fulfill, and some will not. The resources for specific languages are primarily low if a city has a lower need for that language. For example, Orlando, FL, has a Haitian-speaking community, and the resources for Haitian interpreters are higher than in other US-American cities.

ASL and Spanish are significant communities in Orlando, FL. But it is also the home of Haitian, Portuguese, Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese, Arabic, French, Tagalog, Filipino, German, and Russian communities. Consequently, finding an interpreter for the languages mentioned above is more manageable. Finding an interpreter outside these communities is more challenging, but VRI and OPI will always be options.
