Telephonic Interpretation Services

When Critical Conversations Cannot Wait

You can totally depend on Telephonic Interpretation Services from the Tennessee Language Center. We offer on-demand and scheduled telephonic interpretation services with expert interpreters, 24-7, in more than 350 languages. Whether you need interpreters every day or just once in a while, skilled interpreters help you do more business, connect with others, and even save lives. Telephonic, or over-the-phone interpreting (OPI), allows the caller to quickly connect to a qualified professional interpreter within 30 seconds at a fraction of the cost of traditional onsite interpreting.


NEW RATE (effective Jan. 1, 2023) = $.99/minute, with a 20-minute monthly minimum when the service is used during the month.

Our existing clients will need to fill out a new form to get the reduced rate.

There is no charge if the service is not accessed during the month. Invoices will be sent monthly!
