Tariffario traduttori e interpreti – Quanto ne sai sulle tariffe di interpretariato telefonico?

The telephone interpreting è un servizio che esiste in Italia da ormai più di due decenni, ma che è ancora sconosciuto ai più. Negli anni, grazie ai progressi tecnologici, questo servizio è diventato via via sempre più performante e accessibile a livello di costi.

With the arrival of mobile applications, its use has become even more widespread, as well as the ideal solution for quickly and efficiently solving communication problems. However, an aura of mystery still surrounds this interpreting niche, causing many to feel that telephone interpreting charges are high and that access to a professional interpreter is expensive.

Instead, the opposite is quite true. Telephone interpreting is one of the cheapest interpreting methods, in spite of conference interpreting, which remains the most expensive. The reader should be reminded that in telephone interpreting the interpreting technique used is bilateral. The interpreter makes consecutive memories, reproducing the speech after the intervention of each of the parties. In bilateral interpreting, the interpreter translates into both languages within the same conversation.

Rates for telephone interpreters

Companies in the telephone interpreting sector usually bill their services by the minute. Rates for telephone interpreting in Italy are generally between €2.80/minute, as the highest price, and €1.21/minute. But beware! These tariffs for telephone interpreting can be cheaper. If the client uses the interpreting service regularly or has a considerable call volume, then large discounts are usually applied.

As we indicated earlier, the usual thing is that telephone interpreting rates are per minute, but there are other options as well:

  • Telephone interpreting rates per call: a fixed price is established for an interval of minutes. For example, 1 to 6 minutes, 6 to 12, etc. This type of rate is designed to reward the interpreter's agility in handling the call, since the same rate will be paid whether the call lasts two minutes or six. It is particularly useful for customer service telephone services, where the most important aspect is to serve the customer in an agile and decisive manner.
  • Telephone interpreting rates by appointment: usually works by the hour and is indicated for per-established meetings, in which it is known that the minimum duration will be at least one hour.
