  • consecutive interpreting - the interpreter starts interpreting after the speaker has finished or paused, usually after several sentences or shorter parts of speech
  • whispered interpreting (chuchotage) - a form of simultaneous interpreting in which the interpreter interprets the speech in a low voice to a single listener or a small group of people

What clients say


Work with me


I need an interpreter. What should I do?

If you are in need of interpreting services, send me as much information about the event you are planning as possible:

  • date, time and venue
  • duration
  • topic of the event

How much does interpreting cost?

In accordance with contemporary practice, interpreters charge either for a full day (8 hours including breaks and interruptions) or a half-day (4 hours). Price calculation by the hour is not a common practice, as interpreting also includes services beyond actual interpreting performance such as research and preparation, travel and/or consulting.

The price of interpreting services includes cost of transport, accommodation and per diem, if applicable, unless these are otherwise agreed upon by the interpretation service provider and the client.

How can I make the interpreter’s job easier?

In order to assure the highest quality of interpreting services, the client is expected to provide the interpreter with the written form of speeches in question sufficiently in advance. If such texts are not available in advance, other reference documents or additional resources can help the interpreter prepare for the event.

I need a translator. What should I do?

Send me the document you need to have translated per e-mail or, if urgent, contact me by phone first. Do not forget to mention the deadline, target language required, the purpose of the translation and target group (who the translation is aimed at).

What file format should I provide?

Ideally, the document should be provided in an editable format which makes it easier and faster to work with. Another option is to send me a scanned file in sufficiently high resolution which is an imperative for maintaining the required formatting in the target file.

How can I make the translator’s job easier?

The more information you provide, the faster you will receive your translation. Availability of similar texts, additional information or terminology resources is very useful in the translation process. Such reference texts are of particular importance for cohesion of terminology in translation. Also, providing contact information of a person I can address in case of questions is very helpful.

How much does translation cost?

Generally, the cost of translation services is calculated based on the number of words or standard pages of the source text. One standard page contains 1.800 characters including spaces. Therefore, a single page of text rarely equals one standard page for translation. You can easily check the number of standard pages of your document in word processing programs such as Microsoft Word.

How do I get a better price?

Computer-assisted translation is a standard in the contemporary translation business. These software tools simplify the translation process by saving translations of individual text segments into a translation memory and, in case of repetition or partial concordance, automatically providing the translator with the corresponding equivalent in the target language.

Thanks to this method I can offer a better price of translation services compared with translation without software tools. It also means that in case of regular cooperation and larger volumes of text, you can decrease the cost of translation services in the long term.
