LLE’s OPI Easy Switch is designed to offer firms a better choice in the way they communicate with their non-English speaking market utilizing over-the-phone interpretation services
Washington, D.C. (Vocus) July 25, 2008
-- LLE® (Language Learning Enterprises, Inc.), a leading provider of interpretation, translation, and language instruction services to thousands of business, government, and non-profit organizations across the world, today announced the availability of their OPI Easy Switch program. LLE advises that this new program enables organizations of every size a competitive choice in their over-the-phone interpretation service by providing an immediate cost savings with pay-as-you-go, low, per minute pricing, no monthly fees or start-up costs, and no usage minimums or long-term contracts.
“LLE’s OPI Easy Switch is designed to offer firms a better choice in the way they communicate with their non-English speaking market utilizing over-the-phone interpretation services,” states Clyde Anderson, vice president of marketing for LLE. “Our initiative arrives at a time when corporate buyouts, mergers, alliances and partnerships within the marketplace are forcing OPI users to involuntarily switch from their current provider to another firm, often at a much higher price and for a less experienced interpreter.”
To access an interpreter via LLE-LINK® , LLE’s on-demand telephone interpretation system, callers simply dial an 800 number and enter their access and language codes. Once the codes are entered, they are immediately connected to a native speaker fluent in English and the desired language anytime of the day. To date, LLE supports 150 different languages.
Kathleen K. Diamond, LLE president and CEO believes that LLE’s customers and potential customers benefit from a major advantage when engaging professional interpreters for their communication needs. “The LLE difference truly lies in our delivery of multilingual communications. The LLE linguist community is composed of experienced and educated interpreters with years of formal experience. Firms utilizing merely bilingual talent, while a small step in the right direction, are putting their firm, their message and their customers at a disadvantage. The true value lies in the LLE interpreter, our management team and our unique pay-as-you-go, simple pricing.”
Over 56 million individuals within the United States are currently classified as being limited English proficient. Based on data from the LLE Language Index, the firm reports that the most frequently spoken languages in the United States other than English are Spanish, French, Mandarin, Russian and Korean.
Diamond founded LLE in 1979 with a mission to deliver excellence in foreign languages. Since then, the firm has helped thousands of organizations within financial services, real estate, healthcare, insurance, customer support, and government markets, as well as many others, to expand the way they communicate and offer their services to limited English speaking individuals.
