A language interpretation system receives a request for an interpretation of a voice communication between a first language and a second language. Further, the language interpretation system provides the request to a machine language interpreter. In addition, the machine language interpreter provides live language interpretation of the voice communication. The live language interpretation of the voice communication is halted by the machine language interpreter in real time during the live language interpretation based upon a criteria being met. Further, the voice communication is transitioned to a human language interpreter to resume the live language interpretation of the voice communication after the machine language interpreter is halted.
