many interpreters will be necessary for the meeting?
Teamwork is the secret of our profession, involving organisers,
speakers, interpreters, technicians. The size and make up of
the team will depend on the number of languages used, as well
as the duration of the meeting. However, the norm is at least
two interpreters per language. For meetings that are more technical
in nature or with a heavy schedule, more interpreters may be
is the cost of interpreting?
This can vary greatly, just like any professional service.
We can prepare you a detailed quote taking all the factors into
account. There are no hidden commissions. Where there is a consultancy
fee, it is given separately. For simultaneous interpretation,
do not forget to budget for the cost of renting technical equipment
such as booths and amplification systems.
long before the event should I book the team of interpreters?
As long as possible. Professional conference interpreters are
in great demand, so the sooner you can reserve dates, the better
chance of finding the best local ones.
Once you know the dates for your event, you can contact us so
that we can start to prepare the groundwork - giving options
to the interpreters so that they can block the dates in their
calendars, preparing the vocabulary and glossaries, reserving
a meeting hall, etc.
Once you confirm, we will issue contracts laying down all the
conditions, and a signed copy will go to the organiser, the
consultant interpreter and all the members of the team.
is a consultant interpreter and how can he or she help?
A consultant interpreter looks after the difficult task of
putting together a team to provide the most efficient and cost-effective
solution to the questions of subject matter, language combination
etc. Consultant interpreters act individually, or organise themselves
into groups or secretariats with office facilities.
Consultant interpreters are the best placed to solve your doubts
on the type of interpretation required, draw up price estimates,
and take care of certain administrative tasks (contracts, centralising
payments...). Basically, the consultant interpreter is the link
between conference organisers and conference interpreters.
