Please fill in the booking form below to book an interpreter of colour.


After consultation with our members, 60% of our membership voted that agencies should pay an annual fee for unlimited job postings to the IOCN international network and for additional supporter benefits.


This new membership category for agencies is effective from 14 June 2021. If you are an agency, you must now hold Agency Supporter membership in order to post jobs. If you are not an Agency Supporter member, your request will not be forwarded to members.

What to consider when booking an interpreter?

Try to book an interpreter early as there are increasing demands for the service. The interpreters will require the following information:

  • Date

  • Time

  • Duration

  • Venue

  • Number of participants

  • Type of event.


It is also useful to provide:

  • Any preparation materials for the assignment, such as background information

  • Any handouts, video or audio clips that will be used on the day.


How many interpreters to book?

Best practise guidelines suggest that as each booking will be unique, shorter or more basic assignments may require one interpreter.  However, if there is more complex or intense work, or a booking is over a longer duration, two interpreters will be required.  


Events such as conferences, may require a team of interpreters and speech to text operators.

Bookings that require specialist training such as interpreting in child protection and court work, will require two interpreters.

Where will the event take place?

All Interpreters listed on the IOCN website are registered qualified or regulated trainees. IOCN is not an agency. We are a network of professional sharing resources and support. All negotiations agreements are made directly with individual interpreters. In the unlikely event of a dispute, IOCN does not accept any responsibility. Issues should be taken up directly with the interpreter concerned and or the relevant professional registration body.
