It was a great experience to be sent to different places: prison, hospital etc. Sometimes there were no jobs for weeks(not often though) and other times, I had to refuse jobs. Great people in the office. Always nice.
Interesting experience and very formative.
Well it is not a full time job.
It is nice place to working with, flexible hours, freedom to choose jobs suitable for your own hours. Sometimes the travel time is a bit too long, but the travel expense should be all covered. Nice agency colleague, easy to talk to when translator need to assist. Easy going culture in the office.
Great team to work with ! Projects have been delivered with the clear task , time limits are organized really well . Project managers are replying really fast to any of requests. The best thing I like about this company is their ability to solve any problem . P.S. Project Managers have a great sense of humor that creates a good atmosphere in General:)
The workplace culture is great. A good place to work and learn grow yourself fast. During my time as a translator I worked with different project managers and all of them were very professional and happy to assist you with everything you needed. It is a faced paced environment so if you are a person eager to learn new things and works hard this is a place for you.

I have worked for WPT for over a year as a language interpreter. I worked on call and had multiple jobs daily, some very short and some very long and specific. The job requires excellent organization and problem-solving skills, not to mention live translation skills. The office staff was always helpful and I was able to sort all my paperwork, same goes for the payroll department. Management was excellent, I could count on them to help with anything. Staff working on the phone are amazing, as they deal with a lot of scheduling and are always willing to find solutions to fit all. The job is not a typical 9 to 5 so the payment is lower, I would recommend it as an additional job and a great work experience - you get to cooperate with various professionals and deliver a very needed service. For me, personally, the experience with the company was excellent. I never had a single problem with salary. I enjoyed my time spent in Word Perfect Translations. * the hardest part of the job was translating for people in difficult life situations / and travelling to many locations through Dublin traffic * the best part of the job is that it's very meaningful, you help people every day in various ways and receive gratitude from private persons and various private and public sector workers for the service you provide * there is an excellent teamwork in the company - the scheduling staff tries hard to work with interpreters, also other interpreters are willing to help one another if certain jobs stretch in time or if somebody's car breaks down.
travel to the place is practically on your own expenses, payment received with month's delay, neither can't plan your own life nor the salary. Does not pay rent and bills. While traveling to other cities they pay distance, not time spent.
An excellent, cooperative working atmosphere, prompt responses to any queries and a formidable level of attention to detail in the work carried out. I enjoy working with Word Perfect.
Sometimes is very busy, other days quiet. Unpredictable environment, a good experience to meet with people from your own country abroad, experience to visit different institutions, a lot of different information. Sometimes have to make decision on your own.
A good experience
No fixed hours and wages
You meet plenty nice people and work everywhere :) If you like to travel from one place to another then this is perfect job for you.
Very flexible job, decent pay per hour.
It's just occasional employment so no finace security. You may work many hours per week or none.
