We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience as we work to ensure that all calls are reconnected as quickly as possible.
In rare instances, you may encounter a situation where an interpreter declines to continue the call. This may be due to several factors, including the sensitivity of the topic being discussed, conflicts with the interpreter’s religious beliefs, excessive call length, or the presence of highly technical terminology, such as complex legal or medical procedures. While we understand that this can be a frustrating experience, it is best to end the call and connect with a different interpreter. It is recommended to inform the interpreter at the beginning of the call if you anticipate the conversation will include challenging jargon, sensitive topics, or expected to last over 60 minutes. This allows the interpreter to assess their ability to provide effective interpretation services and address any potential concerns upfront.
