Also, a tool has been developed to provide the user with support in using English in the conversation with the interpreter.

The project has been implemented in a user-centered, innovative and iterative process. In this, users from seven public and private clients in healthcare, social services and schools have participated. In the process, developers and consultants in matters relating to legal compliance and information security have participated.
