This is a difficult question that many companies often ask. In this article we highlight 3 most-often used methods for you to consider.


1. Check with public institutions

You could try to contact:

- Your country’s embassy

- Trade facilitation organizations

- Industry associations, and

- Chambers of commerce.

These organizations often keep a list of recommended interpreters like this.


2. Get private recommendations

If you are transacting with a foreign partner / supplier, you can ask them, as they may have used interpretation services with other foreign partners before.

If you know any interpreter in the relevant cities, you can ask him/her for recommendations. Interpreters or translators of different languages are often connected to one another via online or offline groups.


3. Search the Internet

Use the keywords: “reserve interpreters online + your-city-name” and you will find many companies and agencies providing interpretation services. Alternatively, you can book a translator or interpreter online at Freelensia. Please read more on the benefits you get when using a platform to find interpreters here.
