24 hours a day. 7 days per week. 365 days a year.

Before they can join our interpretation network, all of our linguists go through a rigorous vetting process. Signing a stringent HIPAA and GDPR-compliant confidentiality agreement is part of the process. The service pricing is at a fixed rate per minute in all languages. There are no other weekend or “after-hours” fees.

Our linguists sign strict confidentiality agreements and have been through a rigorous vetting process. We are both HIPAA and GDPR-compliant.

All you need is a phone with a good connection.

You must ensure that you speak in the first person and introduce the interpreter to the non-English speaker explaining that they are on the call to interpret. Make sure you speak clearly and pause between long sentences to allow the interpreter to convey what you are saying.

The interpreter will relay what you are saying – they will not give suggestions or opinions on the conversation. At the end of the call, thank the interpreter and advise them that the call will end.

TTG Interpreting Service charges on a per-minute basis. We will quote you a rate per minute, which is the same irrespective of the language, time of day, or day of the week.
