This job is not daily job basis, It is more likely depend on your availability for potential job if there is one offered.
This company is a translation company which has many clients such as, St James hospital, Criminal court of justice and many more. It is manly face to face interpretation and you need to be their anytime the company may need you, You have to be flexible and manage time and be ready for emergency calls at anytime.
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.
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.
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!
nice people the interpreters
abusive working conditions, typical precarious scam
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.
meeting new people, discovering new places, great opportunity to improve your second language
very short hours, travelling takes up too much time and you don't get paid for that time
Help us improve!

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.
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.
