Fun if you are good at it
Chinese (Mandarin) Interpreter in Ireland (Former Employee) –  Athlone, County Westmeath24 September 2019
It is always adventurous, because it requires not just language skill. But also learning new things that is outside your comfort zone. It is a contract base job, public transport fares are covered. And you are free to accept or reject any work based on freewill.

Awful company to work for
Translator (Former Employee) –  Dublin8 September 2019
Payments are never ontime. Terrible payment system and do not care about the translators at all. Would avoid working for this company 100%
Management are as nice as pie when they want jobs done but if you have a problem avoid you at all costs.

Always challenging. Every day is different. Due to the nature of the business might be different locations every day. We do interpreting mostly in courts and hospitals.

scammers offering typical precarious jobs
Interpreter (legal/medical) (Current Employee) –  Dublin15 February 2019
No travel time paid and very few hours. No training.
The Chinese owner is a sociopathic parasite that runs her business like a labour camp. Avoid like plague!
Pros

Cons
abusive working conditions, typical precarious scam

Great for small jobs
Freelance Interpreter (Former Employee) –  Dublin12 November 2018
The company is good if you are willing to build up the relationship with them and work a lot of long hours and multiple translations jobs per day. I personally enjoyed working there as I knew what I was going in to.

Interesting job
Czech & Slovak Interpreter (Current Employee) –  Kerry, Cork10 September 2018
It's an interesting job and it's very different from any other work I have done before. Unfortunately, it's only on occasional basis for me but I guess that depends on the language you work with. Polish interpreters might do this on part or even full time basis, since there are far more Polish people in Ireland. Interpreting in courts might be quite challenging if you're not familiar with the law terms and also, the courtrooms have very poor acoustics. Working in Garda stations is something I enjoy the most.
You are not their employee, you work for them as a freelancer, so you are responsible for your own taxes.
Pros
meeting new people, discovering new places, great opportunity to improve your second language
Cons
very short hours, travelling takes up too much time and you don't get paid for that time

short hours
Translator Interpreter (Current Employee) –  Dublin27 September 2017
you can be called to court, travel there for 30 min each way, park at your expenses and earn 15 € because you are need for one hour. unfortunately that happens too often. that is often whole day of work and your income for a day. good luck.
Pros
flexibility
Cons
short hours

stagiaire (Former Employee) –  Dublin, Ireland22 June 2014
C'était un plaisir d'aller travailler à Translation.ie tous les jours. Le bureau est incroyablement bien situé, à 15min à pied du centre ville, et à une vue superbe sur la Liffey. Grand bureau carré ouvert très lumineux grâce auquel chaque employé a la possibilité de voir et de parler aux autres collègues. Le fait que le bureau ne comprenne que 7 employés facilite l'échange et la convivialité entre collègues, ce qui est un plus pour le bien-être de chaque personne qui y travaille. Les rôles y sont bien définis, ce qui n'empêche pas l'entraide.
Une journée typique commençait par un checking des emails reçus la veille et puis en tant que stagiaire à faire tout ce qu'il m'était demandé de faire pendant la journée, que ce soit accueillir les nouveaux interprètes, préparer les documents, faire de l'archivage, de la comptabilité ou de répondre au téléphone. l'aspect le plus agréable était la diversité des tâches à accomplir ainsi que l'ajout de responsabilités qu'on m'ait donné au fil des mois.
Pros
gentillesse générale
Cons
petite entreprise
