“The possibility of communicating linguistically is simply the basis of social work. Without them, no conversations, understanding and no relationship between client and counsellor are possible. And sometimes it has to be really fast. It is therefore gratifying that there is now the opportunity to reach professional interpreters so quickly and uncomplicatedly. The video interpreting system is useful both in the case of crises in the women’s shelter and for the clarification of emergency calls due to its rapid availability. Our multilingual work routine has become a bit easier.”
