Helpful tips for successful outcomes …
Before calling an interpreter, make sure you know how to activate the loudspeaker mode on your telephone. The loudspeaker function means that the other party can also communicate with the interpreter.
Briefly describe your situation to the interpreter: introduce yourself, your country of origin, where you are, what the situation is, and what you’ll be discussing.
Activate your phone’s loudspeaker and check the interpreter can hear you well.
Speak clearly and concisely, avoiding complicated phrases or sentences.
The interpreter can help you communicate effectively if you make frequent pauses in your conversation, and allow the interpreter to interrupt you or the other party, if necessary.
Respect the independence and impartiality of the interpreter; these are the ethical principles of their occupation.
Calls made from the O2 Czech Republic public landline network are limited to a maximum of 60 minutes. After that time, the call will end.
