Certified Languages International Launches New Video Remote Interpreting 2.0 Platform

Sponsored by Businesswire

Certified Languages International (CLI), the Portland, Ore.-based company committed to providing over-the-phone and video remote interpreting (VRI) solutions, has recently launched its VRI 2.0 platform. The new program enables CLI’s clients to host three-way video calls with non-English-speaking individuals and interpreters, making medical appointments, meetings and transactions more safe and efficient. The new platform is HIPAA compliant, with other features including a refreshed front-end design, an easier-to-navigate interface, which pins to the top of the screen the most frequently used languages, and pre-scheduling functionality.

“At CLI, we believe in pushing innovation that helps make life easier. The pandemic has thrust us into a different mode of working and living and therefore thinking. Most of us are looking for ways to better navigate the world,” said CLI CEO Kristin Quinlan, who also serves on the Board of Directors of the Joint National Committee for Languages and the National Council for Languages and International Studies (JNCL-NCLIS) and is a contributing member of the Globalization and Localization Association (GALA). “Our innovation team is always working on new features to advance our VRI capabilities to better support our clients and the non-English-speaking individuals they serve. It is our mission to keep everyone connected despite language barriers — especially during this time.”

CLI’s VRI 2.0 features new functionality including:
