Clients will be able to book interpreters and translators via our platform. There will be no need to contact each practitioner individually as the platform will allow them to submit requests as well as pay practitioners using the platform as a single-point-access.
We promote and advocate the use of our platform as a viable alternative to profit driven agencies. We provide better value for money, but without compromising professional standards of conduct for Language Service Professionals (LSPs). Our bible is the professional code of conduct National Public Service Register (NRPSI). Only LSPs who are registered with the NRPSI or the International Association of Professional Translators and Interpreters (IAPTI) can be a member of The Interpreting Collective Co-operative Consortium Ltd.
Intermediaries make questionable savings. The wages offered to LSPs are so low that job offers are declined by the professionals and many cases are given to untrained bilinguals. Because of the low wages offered, there are delays due to the poor engagement of true LSPs. The allocation of jobs is coordinated by front line personnel within the intermediaries (at times, remotely through other countries’ call centres) who are unaware of local operational needs.
We aim to offer competitive and affordable pricing for professional services of LSPs but at the same time we will make sure they are fairly reimbursed to match the professional services they provide.
