Frequently Asked Questions

Why do Translators or Interpreters need insurance?

Translators or Interpreters need insurance as this protects the business from the many risks that it could face. This is especially important because you provide professional advice through translating a document or statement to the language your client prefers. Any mistake or anything lost in translation could be disastrous to your client, and they could sue you for it. When that happens, your insurance will pay the cost of defense and court fees, so you don't have to.

What risks do Translators and Interpreters face?

Below are some common risks translators and interpreters could face:

  • One of your employees has translated a statement incorrectly and your client has lost a lot of money as a result. Your client then sues your business for the damages.
  • Your employee has gained access to the confidential documents stored on your computer and has sold this to another business. Your client finds out and sues your business for the negligence of protecting their privacy and records.
  • Your translator becomes sick after traveling to another country with a client. As the employer, you are responsible for the medical payments of your employee.

How much does Interpreter and Translator Insurance cost?

The cost of insurance for translators varies as insurance companies assess this based on the size of your business, the number of employees you have, and the coverage your business needs. If you want to find out the cost of your insurance fast, apply online and receive a free quote in minutes.
