Interpreting Division

ID represents interpreters working or with an interest in many different interpreting sectors, including conference, public service and business interpreting, using liaison, simultaneous and consecutive interpreting modes.

ID has an impressive track record of special interest events, CPD activities and networking opportunities.

Interpreter's Pack

The Interpreter's Pack, produced by experienced interpreters among from our division for the benefit of members, is a valuable go-to document for all interpreters, especially entrants to the profession. It includes a handy checklist for negotiating assignments, a specimen contract and model terms of business, as well as information to send your clients about how they should go about selecting a qualified interpreter. Members (Career Affiliate and higher) can log in to access the pack on this page.

InterpNet

Our e-group InterpNet, as the name implies, is a network of interpreters, working in a variety of languages and offering different types of interpreting. Members are willing to support and cooperate with other members on the list (all members of professional associations), in terms of work and linguistic assistance.

Our e-group's aim is not to procure additional work for members (although cooperation can lead to this) but to facilitate closer working relationships between people working in similar fields. It is the pro-active approach which is most likely to lead to the benefits envisaged and the greater the cooperation, the easier that becomes.
