The growing need for interpreting services—coupled with the ever-growing number of people connected to the Web 24-7—is making online scheduling an absolute necessity for interpreters, translators and facilities looking to improve this time-consuming task.

Appointment-Plus, the worldwide expert in online scheduling solutions and creators of the scheduling industry’s most flexible and feature-rich system, expects the number of interpreters, translators and translation services who rely on its interpreter scheduling software to grow as the volume of professionals in this unique field increases over the next six years.

Appointment-Plus is already experiencing a jump in this industry, as these professionals turn to the leader in interpreter scheduling software to make the scheduling process easier for both them and their clients and customers.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ "Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2010-11 Edition", greater demand for interpreters and translators resulting from the broadening of international ties and growth in the number of non-English speakers in the United States will result in a projected 22-percent increase in the number individuals employed in this profession. This is higher than the average rate of growth for all other occupations.

“It’s a win-win for both translator and their customers and clients.”
