Interpreters break communication barriers
Interpreters don’t necessarily have the riskiest job. However, you still need the right business insurance to cover professional risks. Your clients are commonly high-profile individuals, government personnel, and corporate executives. Any errors or omissions in your translations may lead to financial losses or harm, which can turn into a lawsuit. APOLLO Insurance offers tailored small business insurance for your interpretation business needs.
Even if you’re translating between two of your native languages, there are possibilities of errors. You could have an off day, misunderstand specialized jargon, or mishear a word. Translation mistakes can cause your clients harm or loss, which can create legal troubles for you. Even if you don’t make errors, a client that perceives you made a mistake may still sue. Regardless of the justifications of a lawsuit, your small business may not be financially capable of withstanding the related legal fees. A professional liability insurance policy can cover these costs, so you won’t have to pay out of pocket.
Buying the right insurance is a vital business move for savvy interpreters. It provides your interpretation practice with peace of mind in that you won’t be financially liable in the event of a lawsuit. This lets you create a more predictable business plan with fewer sudden expenses and costs.
