    *Two-hour minimum rule applies.
  • It is advised to book the service as early as possible (5 to 10 days in advance); for next day or same day bookings, the fee is to be specifically negotiated. (For international and high-level events – at least 10 days in advance).
  • 10 minutes after the requested hour is considered another full y-booked hour. The time of the interpreter is paid for in line with the agreement whether or not there is interpreting per se. (The travel time is considered working hours but depending on the specific task, the interpreter’s fee can be 50 of the full-hour/day fee, but not less than a 4 working hours fee).
  • With last minute cancellations* we follow the standard provisions, detailed in the Interpreting Service Agreement.
  • Events outside of Sofia – the client provides the transport, accommodation and all relevant expenses of the interpreter/s.
  • If you order Conference Equipment, the transport, accommodation and food expenses of the Technical Team shall be calculated as well.
  • As a courtesy to our clients, CONTEXTA does not price additionally for direction of the interpreting (English to Bulgarian or vice versa).
