Victor Abundis and Victor Arellano developed an app that will provide real-time interpreting services, reports Latino USA in an article published online on May 23, 2018. The app, currently in the beta stage, was developed as an alternative to non-English speakers with legal issues and immediate need of an interpreter. Abundis hopes that Interpreter Tap will resolve the shortage in interpreters he has witnessed in his 12 years as an interpreter in Cook County, Illinois. 

The app currently offers interpreting services in Arabic, Spanish and American Sign Language. The Android version is available for download and a version is also being developed for IOS. The app will be initially available for attorneys and community organizations in Cook County but Abundis and Arellano plan to make it available for anyone to use.

You can visit www.interpretertap.com to learn more about the app and to follow their progress and hopeful arrival to the Indiana legal community.
