3 journalist will come to Gaza .Palestine and they ask me about my rate to be their fixer and interpreter during their visit and work with people in Gaza .

this is the first time to do interpretation could you please help me and to suggest the reasonable price for me and them?

And how can account the hours of work

Is it since accompanying them(for example 8 am to 3 pm) or it just for the actual interpreting time with people (for example excluding transportation time ….etc.)

Please help ?

Out of my experience May 28, 2008

Hi !

I was asked by an agency to interpret several times. The agency paid all the hours spent with the clients. Once it was 8 hours, and you can imagine that I have NOT been interpreting all the time.

Good luck!

Charge May 28, 2008

At least 500 euros per day, 8 hour day when you are with them, regardless of what you are doing. Over 8 hours, charge more. Gaza is a dangerous place.

500 euros Jun 18, 2008

If I do interpretation for Amercan and European clients in China, is it possible for me to charge 500 euros on a daily basis?

Many thanks,

Jack
