I was contacted to do an interpretation job (4 hours a day during two weeks), and I would like to know what is the average rate for this kind of work per hour.

Thanks

I'm assuming it's Consecutive Interpreting? Are they paying for your lodging, meals if requried? Any transportations costs involved?

R,
kurt

Yes, it is consecutive Jan 19, 2005

and it is to be done in the same area where I live, so no accommodation costs. Transport or meals they will pay.

no hourly rates! Jan 19, 2005

you'll have to wait for Portuguese interpreters to give you hints on market rates in Portugal (I'm in France and can't help on this), but... there should be no such thing as "hourly rates" - just daily rates - a day started is a day due and payable for interpreters, whether you work 2 or 7 hours (and all the more with 4 hours a day).
Maybe you should post this on the Interpreting Forum, you might get more feedback.

hourly rates are quite normal imho Jan 20, 2005

Hi,

I don't know about other people/countries but in the UK charging per hour is quite normal, especially for escorting or other jobs where the exact amount of work cannot be determined in advance.

In the UK prices can vary from 20 to 50 GBP per hour, depending on a number of things, but in Portugal prices are likely to be different. I would try asking this same question in the interpreters' forum.

All the best
Konstantin
