Our History

Optimal Phone Interpreters was launched in May 2003 after noticing an unmet need with our on-site interpreting clients. After a decade of success, we now serve over 3800 clients and help more than 1 million limited English-speaking people communicate every year.


OPI is created to offer our on-site interpreting clients to provide instant over-the-phone interpreting in any language, any time. The model is developed that utilizes only domestic, bilingual, live operators differentiating us from others in the market.


OPI launches a proprietary platform integrating call management software with telephony to create a seamless process with our clients and improved call answer and interpreter connect times.
