williamson wrote:What they will not teach you at any interpreter school is that freelancers are "business-people" and it is up to you to negotiate. On the free market, it is your rate and it is up to you to stick by your rate, even if you loose a customer. Better to end up with a handful of well-paying customers, than with customers who pay peanuts (temporary employment agencies).
Not all European social security is as expensive as French social security and not all business forms (sàrl, s.a., kft, ltd, llp) cost as much money to start. Some countries are more business-minded and less bureaucratic.

williamson wrote:From the website of an agency which acts as an intermediate between interpreters and end-customers:
Do interpreters always work into one target language?
NO. All interpreters booked by XXX work into two languages, if not requested otherwise.
Example: If main language is Englisch, the Spanish interpreter translates into Spanish, but if Spanish is spoken on floor, this interpreter automatically switches to English. This leads to the advantage that the client can save one booth (2 interpreters).
Everyone on the private market keeps repeating that you need a B if you want to find any work. Nothing abnormal, it's not an infringement of AIIC standards due to money issues.But is that the case on the private market? Well, let me know firsthand when you graduate.

Surely it's a basic entrance requirement?!

I did not participate in any exam-round at interpreter schools since 2004, because I consider graduating in business
to come first. Has to do with being realistic.
