Fellows' Help Desk

As at previous Conferences, Fellows of the Institute will be available at a Help Desk during the coffee, lunch and tea breaks to answer enquiries on a multitude of topics. These don’t have to be confined to queries about applying for fellowship. In the past, we’ve also provided information on :

  • How to set rates and the best way to apply rate rises
  • Progression between ITI membership categories
  • The assessment process for advancement to MITI status
  • Breaking into the interpreting scene
  • How to pitch to translation companies and public sector bodies
  • Insurance matters
  • How to choose a specialist subject
  • Translation and interpreting tools
  • Retirement plans and selling a translation/interpreting business

Don’t be shy. We’ll do what we can to help and if we don’t know the answer we can probably suggest someone who does.
