Why do I have to pay travel/prep time and minimums?
Interpreters work in a multitude of communication encounters from schools and business to medical appointments and courtrooms. For each request the interpreter must prepare for the type communication that will occur, the kind of vocabulary that will be used, and the logistics of where they will be. Each assignment requires that the interpreter do prep work before the assignment and that the interpreter be able to travel wherever they are needed. Set travel/prep times and minimums are the fairest and simplest way to create standardization for the interpreters and consumers.
