Transitioning Parent Teacher Interviews Online With Video Interpreting

Supporting remote learning with Telephone Interpreting at Language Loop

With traditional on-site interpreting assignments being impacted by social distancing requirements last year, LanguageLoop, Australia’s leading language service provider, developed and rolled out their Video Conferencing (VC) interpreting solution.

Originally developed in response to an urgent need to provide interpreting services during the COVID-19 pandemic, our VC interpreting solution connects Non-English Speaking (NES) parents and teachers with our interpreters through any video conferencing platform (Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Skype, GoToMeeting etc.) This solution has been extremely popular across the education sector, enabling culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) students to continue their education from home without any disruption.

This solution has assisted many schools conduct their parent teacher interviews throughout the pandemic, enabling teachers to speak directly to the CALD parents via video with the help of one of our interpreters. This contactless and COVID-safe solution removes the language barrier for those families who aren’t fluent in English.

“During Online Learning in 2020, LanguageLoop were wonderful in helping our school to set-up a schedule of interpreters to join virtual Parent Teacher Interviews online,” Dani, an EAL Teacher said.

“Our international families from non-English speaking backgrounds really appreciated communicating online with teachers with the assistance of the LanguageLoop interpreters.”
