Hi. Feb 13, 2014

I don't know where you live, but in the United States, you usually charge a 3 hour minimum, at a regular interpreting rate, like $50-$100/hr on average. If you provide your own equipment you can charge slightly more.

Ok. You should use the rates popular in the US. Feb 16, 2014

I had the impression you were form France, only later I looked at the location. Good luck. Always charge a 3 hr minimum, though, because you have to book your time and often decline other ssignments.

Rates for VRI Sep 28, 2017

Hello, everybody,

I have been contacted by expat company from overseas, exactly from Dubai for remote video interpreting. I was offered a flat rate of 25 USD per 40-45 minutes. The company said the will also provide me with translated scripts/subtitles. Is this rate realistic?

I have in-person interpreter experience more than 7 years already. Occasionally, in my interpreter career, I happen to do OPI (Over the phone interpreting). But, I've never rendered any VRI.

Please, share your valuable experience with the following stuff:
- What are current rates for VRI? How they vary? Depending on what aspects?
- What industries/countries/companies tend to opt for video remote interpreting?
- What are main challenges?

Thank you all. Any tips will go. I appreciate your comments.

Prices Vary Across The Country Aug 24

Hello All!

I work for an American Sign Language company based out of Arizona. We offer face to face services there. Recently our owner has chosen to open a nationwide company that offers video remote interpreting. From the research we have done the rates that are paid to interpreters as well as the fees that are charged to clients have a pretty wide range around the country. It is interesting to see how different areas operate and it would seem that $1.95/minute to $3.25/minute seems to be the common range to charge customers, usually with a 15 minute or 30 minute minimum.

However, on the interpreter pay rate there is a pretty big gap, which usually depends if people are being paid as staff to man a vri station or are freelancers picking up jobs as they choose.

Hope this helps,

Nick
