Service – Unlike other forms of interpreting, Conference Interpreting fees are per diem only, and based on a 7-hour working day, overtime @ 1/7th day rate.  For work requiring more than 2 hours’ travel in each direction, half-day approach fees may apply.  This is negotiable, with some exceptions for long-standing clients and/or some charitable work.  Please ask.

C.V., Diplomas:  PDF versions available of full C.V., degrees and diplomas.  Again, please ask.

Scope - In all cases and in particular, in rapid turn-round work and in unfavourable electronic and/or other technical circumstances for which the Translator/Interpreter is not responsible, including non-provision of available reference-material, financial liability is limited to the invoiced cost of the relevant service.
