PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwire - Oct 29, 2012) - Deaf-Talk, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: MGQG), dba DT Interpreting (DTI), the industry leader in on-demand video sign language interpreting, today announced that commencing November 1, 2012, the Company will introduce non-English video interpreting service, initially focused on Spanish, Russian, Arabic, Cantonese, Mandarin and Vietnamese languages. Rates will be very affordable to provide more access to those in need.
The new non-English video service will initially be available during the industry's high use period of Monday through Friday from 8:00a to 5:00p with plans to increase hours and languages offered as demand warrants. DTI has long offered such non-English over-the-phone interpreting and has a network of 1000 interpreters who are experienced in medical terms and skilled native speakers of 180 languages.
David Stauffer, DTI President, stated, "Industry studies show that visual interaction with an interpreter helps to ease anxiety for a patient of limited English proficiency. It also increases effectiveness in special situations such as explanations of equipment use or for hospital discharge procedures. Such improvement in patient communications raises the standard of care for healthcare facilities, which DTI continuously strives to impact."
Rates for the new non-English video interpreting service are quite affordable because the Company is, in essence, marrying aspects of two services already offered: the Internet-based DT Video Hub and multi-language over the phone interpreting. DT Video Hub integrates with existing dedicated video conferencing equipment as well as Internet-connected tablets, PC notebooks, MACs, iPhones, iPads and Android mobile phones.
