Vasco Electronics is known for developing cutting-edge voice translators with high translation accuracy and speed, often creating bespoke translators for government institutions, the military, and medical organizations.
As such, they were approached by the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) for voice translators for families who come to the United States to treat children with serious, or rare, diseases.
The RMHC provide homes close to hospitals, family rooms at hospitals, care mobiles for those who are unable to travel and grants for families with seriously ill children who may need to travel to various hospitals for care.
As many serious and rare diseases require treatment far from home, the RMHC offers places to stay for families near big hospitals.
This is not only important as it ensures families worn down by worry receive a warm welcome, but also because many families simply don’t have the funds to pay for additional housing while already coping with expensive medical bills.
Many children and adults who come from overseas have a hard time understanding the medical staff, not to mention other patients and families whom they may bond with and receive emotional support from during their stay.
It’s part of the Vasco company culture to support those in need, so when RMHC in New Jersey reached out asking for some translators, it was only natural that they should oblige. “It’s in our DNA to give whenever possible, so it was our absolute pleasure to support the RMHC. While translators may only be a small contribution to the RMHC’s incredible work, we hope that it will bring some comfort to families by helping them understand those around them and making themselves understood.”
Vasco translators are capable of fast and accurate translation for two-way conversations in over 50 different languages. What’s more, Vasco Mini 2s come with built-in SIMs that offer free internet in 150 different countries. This means, patients never have to pay for translations. Using five different online translation engines all Vasco translators are capable of handling medical terms, which is particularly important when it comes to translations happening in hospitals.
