Elite AsiaInterpreting Industry- Find Out MoreWhy are interpretation services so expensive?

Interpretation requires deep concentration, professionalism, a nimble mind and thorough knowledge of both the target and source languages. Being able to speak both languages does not mean that you can become an interpreter, as interpreting is much more than conversing in the language. Interpreters are expected to be able to enter a situation where they are not sure of exactly what the speakers will say, and understand the content spoken, translating it into another language accurately on the spot. It requires a high degree of professionalism and strong linguistic skills. For important business meetings and high-level conferences, the proficiency level of the interpreters will have a substantial impact on the success of your event. In other words, only a small pool of talents are able to perform such a role. That is why qualified and experienced interpreters have higher rates.
