I am a newly certified court interpreter (Spanish) in California. Can anyone give me advice on payment? I would like to know how much I can charge as an agency interpreter. I understand there is a set $ amount if I work as an in-house interpter in a courtroom but don't know how it works for agencies. Any advice would be great. I really want to get into the field asap. Thanks!

hi! I am trying to get help! I am translating a police report from Spanish to English. Should I do it word to word or by meaning of each paragraph?

AS an agency interpreter your pay will be reasonable enough as a starter till you gain the experience and be qualified and accredited to work for the court as a full time interpreter.

Thanks
