Interpreting Rates and Conditions   Leave a comment

Rates

A two-hour start-up fee applies to all assignments. Customers will be billed a start-up fee ranging from $110-$140 depending on the assignment, time of day and interpreters assigned.

Hourly rates, after the initial start-up fee, range from $55-$70 per hour depending on the assignment, time of day and interpreters assigned. Please fill out the service request form and we will contact you with availability and rates.

Non-profit rates are negotiable.

Cancellations and No-Shows

Cancellations made less than two business days (48 hours) from the start time of the confirmed assignment will be billed in full. If consumers do not appear (no-show) for the scheduled assignment, our interpreters will remain on-site for twenty minutes after the scheduled time, unless otherwise negotiated. In a “no-show” situation, the assignment will be billed in full.

 

Payment

Payment is due within thirty (30) days of invoice receipt. Late payments will be assessed a 5% late fee for each seven day period in which payment is not received. Invoices will
 be emailed or if desired you may request a hard copy be mailed to you via the U.S. Postal Service.
 Payment is accepted by check only.

 

Professionalism

All interpreting assignments are held in confidence. We adhere to 
the National Association of the Deaf-Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID) Code of Professional Conduct. We make customer satisfaction a priority. Please contact us using the contact form to evaluate our work or to give feedback on our services.

 

Coverage

Assignments may require two interpreters depending on the duration and intensity of assignment. It is industry standard that assignments longer than two hours in duration utilize two interpreters. We are happy to schedule additional interpreters or make referrals as necessary.

 

Reimbursable Costs

Travel and lodging expenses will not be added for jobs within the Metro area. Assignments requiring additional travel, lodging or other expenses will be negotiated before confirming assignments and will be billed at cost.
