Hi,

Could autónomos/as tell me if they have taken out professional indemnity insurance in Spain? I made enquiries about a year ago now and nobody seemed to understand what I actually wanted, which left me rather perplexed. Is it possible for it to cover interpretation as well as translation, and if the cover extends to sworn translations too?

Thanks in advance for any input.

Professional indemnity insurance Jan 4, 2008

Dear Taty,

On 11th July 2007, the Parliament of Spain approved a new law: Ley 20/2007, de 11 de julio, del Estatuto del Trabajo Autónomo, consecuently, freelancers in Spain have to pay, by law, a professional accidents insurance (prestación económica por incapacidad temporal derivada de contingencias comunes) and it is possible to pay for a professional indemnity insurance (cobertura de las contingencias profesionales), if you opt to pay for it.
Both interpreting and translation are included in epigraph 774, Section 2 (IAE - Impuesto de Actividades Económicas); and sworn translators/interpreters are included in the same epigraph.
Find updated information in:

Hope it helps,

Kind regards,

David
