  • Which interpreting mode (simultaneous, consecutive or whispered) would be most suitable?
  • What equipment will be needed?
  • What practical issues need to be taken into account?
  • How much will it cost?
    - Interpretation fees
    - Organisation fees
    - Expenses and accommodation allowances
    - Compensation for travel time
    - Travel expenses
    - Equipment
    - Where relevant, copyright fees (i.e. for recordings or online streaming of interpretation)
    - Value added tax

Interpreting Equipment

Simultaneous interpreting equipment should be chosen either by your interpreters themselves, or in consultation with them, to ensure that that everything runs smoothly. Here, too, our members will be glad to provide detailed advice.
