In order to give the best and most
accurate quote NTIS New Zealand will need a high level
of detail regarding the proposed assignment - forward
planning is of the utmost importance. We have a minimum
charge of either 1 hour or half a day depending on what
the assignment is and where it is.
Costs depend on the following.
Type of Interpreting - Simultaneous
Type of assignment - Conference,
Factory Visit, Tour, etc.
Difficulty of assignment - Lecture,
Technical Workshop, General conversational etc.
Length of Assignment - A three day
assignment will attract a lower rate per hour than say a
20 minute assignment
You also need to consider travel
costs, accommodation costs if required, and general
disbursements that will be charged back to you.
Simultaneous Interpretation requires
specialist equipment which needs to be hired.
If this is the first time you have
used an interpreter you should be aware that
professional interpreting is not cheap. If you require
simultaneous interpretation you should be aware that
three interpreters are normally required as a minimum.
This is due to the high level of concentration needed
and the fact that interpreters need frequent breaks
during the work.
Tour guides are not so expensive
but you should expect to cover the duration of your
requirements as well as any travel and accommodation
