hello there,

i have been working as freelance conference interpreter for
the region of hong kong and china. i relocated to the us
recently and looked into the matter of being freelance
interpreter for un and eu. is there anyone who can give me
some advice as to how to do that? i have contacted the
chief interpreter in the un but was told no freelance
needed for the language of mandarin and english for the
next four five years. i was in such despair and can anyone
think of any advice?

Hello Manyee Jun 19, 2007

Welcome to ProZ!

Why limit yourself to UN and EU? Many translation agencies hire simultaneous interpreters on an as-needed basis.

there are not that many conference in need of mandarin/cantonese s.i. Jun 20, 2007

dear trudy,

thanks for your reply. but you see, in the u.s., there are not that many conferences needing mandarin and cantonese s.i. services. some of the events needing s.i. were not those working in the booth and two people a team kind of thing. it is really not what i was doing. that is why i think the only place where chinese s.i. is constantly needed would be the un or the eu. but perhaps you have some ideas or know conferences around required chinese s.i.?
