Hi everybody
I do telephone interpreting for New Zealand and I will be able to do telephone interpreting for Australia when I get my NAATI accriditation (finger cross). My question: What are the chances of doing telephone interpreting for the UK or USA from New Zealand?
cheers
Atena

For the USA Sep 17, 2007

Hi Atena.
For the USA, the East Coast of the USA is 15 hours behind you. The West Coast of the USA is an addtional 3 -4 hours behind the East Coast. So there should be some overlap in hours - i.e. When it is Morning in NZ, you can get some afternoon and evening hours from the USA.
Keep in mind almost all phone interpreting occurs between 8:00-18:00 hours, and sometimes at night depneding on the job. So you will be able to get some overlap. The same is possible for the UK, to a better degree.
You best bet is still probably Australia, since they are 3 hours behind you I assume.

Telephonic interpreting Sep 24, 2007

Hi everyone,

I do telephonic interpreting for the UK market only. One of their conditions was to use a UK landline (neither a mobile phone nor a VOIP phone) due to bad quality of voice. It might just be my company that is so strict. You could always give it a try.
