LanguageLine Solutions and WeBuy Houses Partner to Provide Interpreting Services
Sep 20, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
LanguageLine Solutions, a company focused on over-the-phone interpreting, announced it has partnered with We Buy Houses, a national provider of marketing services to residential real estate investors, to provide interpreting services to investors in their national network.
According to a release, We Buy Houses investors offer homeowners the option to sell quickly for cash in markets throughout the U.S.
"The demographics of home ownership in the U.S. have shifted dramatically, and we want to be the first in our industry to acknowledge the importance of different cultures and languages in real estate transactions," noted Jeremy Brandt, CEO of We Buy Houses. "The number of U.S. homeowners that do not speak English as their primary language has grown dramatically over the past decade. They are now represented across all demographics and geographies, so any successful professional in our business must have a strategy to deal with language barriers. Most of our clients are not multilingual, so it's critical to have a strong language partner to ensure that can work with all homeowners in the language of their choice."
"Selling your home can be a difficult and confusing process even if everyone involved speaks the same language. We Buy Houses investors simplify the home selling process, and now they can do so in more than 200 languages thanks to our 6000 interpreters," said Scott W. Klein, President and CEO of LanguageLine Solutions. "Armed with only their cell phone, We Buy Houses licensees can access our Over the Phone Interpretation (OPI) service at the exact moment they need it, in any location. In less than a minute, they connect with an appropriate language interpreter and they are able to conduct business with homeowners who speak a different language."
The U.S. Census reported that the number of limited English proficient individuals grew by 80 percent between 1990 and 2010 and is expected to continue growing, fueling the demand for even more access to interpreters.
