About our interpreters

Interpreting isn’t something any bilingual can do.

On the contrary, it’s a demanding profession, requiring very high language skills and a rather specialised talent.

It takes huge mental processing to interpret speech segments accurately and fluently, under time pressure, one after another, for an extended period. Few bilinguals can do it well.

First of all they need the aptitude and advanced language skills, then spend time learning their craft through practical experience.

Our interpreters:

  • have undergone specific interpreting training - in New Zealand or overseas
  • have several years professional interpreting experience
  • have a track record of successful assignments
  • are talented! (we know this from client feedback)
  • are schooled in the ethics of our profession (the NZSTI Code of Ethics and Code of Conduct) and general business ethics
  • are frequently well known and respected members of their local communities

The key to ensuring your interpreting assignment will be successful

The key thing you as a client can do to ensure a great interpreting outcome, is make sure we understand exactly what your assignment will involve.

Not just its purpose and subject matter. But crucially how you want to use the interpreter - what you want them to do.

Also important is whether there’ll be any specialised technical or legal matters needing interpretation.

The better we understand what your assignment involves, the easier it will be to select the most suitable interpreter and get you the result you want.

And the easier it’ll be to identify potential difficulties or areas where the interpreter will need to prepare. For example, they might want to go over your materials, do some background reading, or brush up on specialist vocabulary.

Assignments may also incur parking and mileage costs, and for travel outside main centres a travel charge of $50 per hour.
