What questions should I ask a vendor of simultaneous interpreting services?

Written by Singapore on . Posted in

  • How will they recruit the interpreters? Directly or by sub-contracting to another provider?
  • What is their track record in organising meetings with conference interpreters? Is it simply something they do on the side?
  • Who are the interpreters?
  • Can I see the interpreters? references, CVs, professional affiliation and language combination?
  • Will I be able to liaise directly with the interpreters or their team leader before and during the meeting to help them prepare?
  • Is the vendor willing to provide a breakdown of costs with the actual fee the interpreters will receive to ensure transparency?
