    Conference Sign Language Interpreting FAQs

    Why are two interpreters recommended for conference/platform interpreting?

    Interpreting is physically and mentally taxing. Having two interpreters allows for a tag-team approach in which interpreters alternate every 20 or so minutes to preserve the integrity of your message, delivering the information your attendees are looking for with the highest fidelity to the source.

    Are interpreters paid for their time between sessions? During lunch?

    Yes, on both counts. Interpreters work for their living like any professional. By asking them to dedicate their day to a conference, they expect to be compensated for that time. Additionally, it is well known that conferences are some of the most outstanding locations to network with other professionals in a given field. Your attendees will have access to our interpreters for the whole day to network with colleagues and peers.

    Does the conference planner reimburse for parking?

    Parking is typically covered by the convention. Many conventions and conferences have parking privileges as part of their venue package. We find that it is easiest for conferences to work with these kinds of approaches, there are always exceptions.

    Do we reimburse for mileage?

    Conference planners do not pay for mileage for our sign language interpreters. The rates and quote 5 Star Interpreting gives upon your contact will outline an “out the door” cost given that your event and bookings do not run longer than expected.
