The standard working day in simultaneous translation is eight hours and requires two interpreters per language, alternating for an hour each.
Opitrad is able to provide this kind of service at competitive rates. We also provide complex Multilanguage booths, often in a typically congress context, with various language combinations; if you need to request an urgent estimate, contact us to find out the details of the Simultaneous Interpreters offered by our agency.
