MULTILINGUAL SERVICES

Multilingual interpretation services using tablets

An interpretation service via tablet is now available in several municipal facilities. An interpreter will appear on the screen of a tablet, and interpret the communication between a foreign resident and Minato City staff. The camera on the tablet can be used to assist with document translation.
This interpretation solution will eliminate the language barrier between foreign residents and city staff. Also, municipal services will be provided smoothly and adequately by reducing the waiting hours. By providing tablet interpretation services as an alternative to on-site interpreters, who are unavailable during the busy counter hours, it will reduce the waiting hours for residents who need language assistance.
