Interpreting and Translating Services | Deaf Connect

...Why choose us?

Do you remember the time when we didn’t have access to interpreters? Doctors’ appointments, university, work meetings, family weddings and celebrations – all without an interpreter. It was a challenging time.

Over time access has improved and we now have access to interpreters for a variety of situations. But, if you get the wrong interpreter, you can still experience frustrating communication breakdown, right?

We want our customer to have great communication support. Our experienced bookings team will work with you to find the best interpreters for you. Our aim is to provide you with interpreters that make communication comfortable and smooth.

Video Remote Interpreting (VRI)

VRI enables you to access an interpreter without being in the same room, or even in the same city. Connect with an interpreter through online platforms such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet and FaceTime. Any service, business, individual or organisation that requires Auslan-English interpreting to communicate effectively can do so through the use of VRI. This technology works in the same way as traditional on-site interpreting, only the interpreter is viewed on a screen.
