Conference interpreters are paid daily fees. Travelling time (usually 2/3 of their daily rate), per diem (travel allowance), airfares and overnight expenses are additional costs, if the required interpreters are not available locally. Once an interpreting job is confirmed, interpreters reject other offers for that day, so even a 3 hour interpreting job will be charged with a daily rate. Intense preparation for the conference is essential to this profession, so the more material and resources they can get beforehand, the higher the performance of the interpreters and ultimately that guarantees the success of your conference.
All Conference and VIP Interpreters provided by 2M are AIIC members as well as NAATI (National Accreditation Authority for Translators & Interpreter of Australia) accredited senior conference interpreters.
