I do not live in the United States. Can I provide interpreting services from overseas for your company?
No, you must live in the United States or Canada.
I don’t have a landline telephone. Can I use my cell phone?
No, cell phones are unreliable for security and sound quality reasons — a basic landline telephone is an industry requirement. However, added features are not necessary (no long distance, call waiting/forwarding, etc.).
What kind of support will I have while I’m working with CLI?
You will have direct access to quality assurance supervisors around the clock for any questions you might have, and our Interpreter Services team remains in regular communication with you throughout your time working with us to provide support, resources, and information.
What types of companies do you provide interpreting services for?
CLI’s clients span across all industries, including medical/healthcare, financial/banking, insurance, call centers, retail, customer service, travel/tourism/hospitality, telecommunications, utilities, education, government, and courts/legal systems.
How do you pay your interpreters?
We pay for actual time spent interpreting (per minute). Your recruiter will cover the specifics of compensation with you during the recruitment process.
CLI works hard to foster a supportive, rewarding, and enjoyable community for our interpreters. Here is what a few of them have to say about working with us.
Limited English proficiency impacts health disparities through access, understanding, care planning, outcomes, safety, satisfaction, and health literacy. As an international medical graduate, I find over-the-phone interpretation to be just like medicine — ever-changing and challenging, with a team of top professionals behind me 24/7/365 to ensure that my linguistic skills will be beneficial for our clients. When you factor in human customer service representatives, steady call volume, and timely payments, CLI was the logical choice.

I love working with CLI due to its variety of clients, but what I love the most of CLI is its human touch.
After seven years, I can say CLI is a great place to work because of the professionalism and teamwork that is displayed every day, and the good customer service skills, which are necessary for bridging the cultural and language barriers in medical, legal, and all other areas of interpreting.
It has been a very rewarding experience working with CLI over the last 2 years. This company provides a friendly environment with a high level of professionalism and working time flexibility.
