MINT Bilingual Relay Services


 voip-no-hardware.pngMINT's Bilingual Message Relay is a low cost, high efficiency solution to communicate with Limited English speaking clients. For a minor setup fee and only cents per word, MINT creates your own language line. Your MINT language line then relays non-urgent messages to Limited English clients, and returns their messages to you, via voice mail, email, or text.



The Problem

Even when clients are not in your office there is a need to communicate with them. This is also true for your Limited English Clients. These communications are part of the bread and butter of your operations. For example, your office may need to schedule a meeting with a Limited English Client, give them the results of an assessment/test, get a signature from them, or gather more information. Similarly, Limited English Clients need the reassurance they can communicate with you. They may need to cancel an appointment, or call asking about updates on a case. These are examples of everyday operations within organizations. These operational needs change from organization to organization, but they are ubiquitous in all workplaces. Without them your business or services cannot function effectively, and your clients cannot receive full and equal access to the benefits of the services or functions rendered by your organization.

Language barriers make these everyday operations difficult, and until now there have been no efficient and effective tools designed to primarily address operations. To overcome operational communication barriers, some businesses have chosen to communicate with their Limited English Clients through a family member or friends designated by the client. This option raises privacy concerns and also takes time, effort, and resources. Communication through a designated layman proxy is neither professional or reliable, opening organizations to unwanted liabilities and risks. To avoid this, some organizations incur the cost of expensive interpreter agencies in their everyday operations. This option reduces liabilities, unwanted risks, and addresses privacy concerns, but is a costly solution, takes up valuable time and resources. Additionally, hiring expensive interpreter agencies does not solve the problem of giving Limited English Clients an equal opportunity of contacting you. To contact you the Limited English Client may still need to use a family member or friend, raising the same concerns outlined above. Another "solution" includes having the Limited English Clients contact you directly (or the interpreter agency), ask for an interpreter, hang up, and wait for a call back. This process is not only costly and time consuming, but can builds walls to effective communication. There are many reasons why Limited English Clients may feel overwhelmed by having to communicate in English to contact you. They may regularly choose not to do so.

Until MINT Bilingual Relay Service, there has been no good way to overcome operational language and cultural barriers, requiring you to incur the cost of expensive interpreter agencies for a partial solution, which wastes valuable time and other resources in the process.

MINT Bilingual Relay Service takes care of the rest, relaying your message to the Limited English Client and getting back to you with a response.
