Factors considered will include times, location and appropriateness of the booking. A waiver of the cancellation fee will be considered if the interpreter accepts alternative work, but is at the discretion of the interpreter.
If the Client is unexpectedly absent then the Interpreter shall wait at the venue until 30 minutes after the agreed start time. When the Client has failed to attend an event then the Interpreter shall charge the full service fee plus travel expenses.
I shall not charge a service fee if I am unable to attend an event due to unforeseen circumstances and will attempt to arrange a substitute interpreter and will notify the relevant parties as soon as possible..
- The full venue address.
- A contact name and telephone number.
- The start and finish times.
- Details about the Client and the assignment. For assignments wherepreparation is needed, I reserve the right to withdraw from the assignment should the unavailability of the resources required to prepare adequately render me unable to continue with the job and provide a competent service.
- Any support material necessary to assist the Interpreter.
- The name and address of the person to be invoiced, along with any specificdetails required on the invoice, ie purchase order number.
- Name and telephone number of each co-worker.
Should a co-worker who has been scheduled to undertake the assignment alongside me not be able to attend then I may be willing to continue alone depending on the nature of the job and the duration. A higher fee will be charged to compensate for working alone.
Assignments exceeding two hours duration normally necessitate the use of two interpreters although there may be exceptions (subject to prior agreement) depending on the nature of the assignment.
On occasion assignments under two hours may require a co-worker if they are particularly intense. Only interpreters also registered with NRCPD are acceptable.
Should I have to withdraw from the assignment; every effort will be made by to find a replacement interpreter.
