Working hours

There is a generally accepted standard applying to the amount of time a single interpreter can provide continual service without negatively affecting the wellbeing of the interpreter or the quality of his/her performance. The maximum is set at 1 hour.

In the event that there are two interpreters working at the same event and assuming that they alternate every 2 hours, the acceptable duration of work is 2 interpreters x 3 hours.

Meetings that last longer than 6 hours require a third interpreter or an additional pair of interpreters.

Make sure that these points are kept in mind when negotiating the details (hours, number of sessions, speakers) of the agreement to be worked out with the ALS office.

The ALS office shall be of assistance in determining the number of interpreters you event needs.
