All agencies charge premiums that clients are finding difficult to justify
Clients currently contracted with interpreting agencies face immense pressure to reduce costs. Finding alternative solutions is becoming a necessity. The current model of agency interpreters and the costs is un-affordable and unsustainable.
Many clients already manage their own budgets making decisions locally. Most are seeking a good quality service at a fair price. Many schools, law firms and other public service clients contract with interpreters directly avoiding expensive agency premiums. Direct contracting offers interpreters a better rate and saves clients money.
Devolved budgets and decisions on how money is spent taken at a local level will mean more and more clients will be able to make sensible decisions about their interpreting needs. Ensure that you are well placed to benefit from clients looking to avoid agency premiums and contract with independent interpreters directly.
