Interpretation is the oral conversion of the meaning of a message of one language into another. Many people consider interpretation to be more difficult than translation (convertintg texts from one language into another) because it requires that instantaneous decisions be made in the context of the pressure of dealing with 'live' people.
We are CILISAT certified and we have extensive experience in conference and business interpretation, especially for the mining industries.
We charge from $70 to $140 per hour depending of the complexity of the topic, with a minimum of 2 hours of work. In other words, even if the meeting or appointment lasts for only 15 minutes, we charge for 2 hours. The reason for this is because one appointment takes up at least a 1/2 a day when travel time is factored in.
We are willing to travel as far as you wish as long as the travel expenses are covered. If for example, your appointment is in Niagara Falls, and we are using our own vehicle, you must cover gasoline and parking and lodging, if required. We are willing to drive you if you have no vehicle yourself. We have special daily rates for jobs that you know beforehand will requiere our services for the whole day.
