Example calculation

Example calculation 1

  • You planned a session of 1 hour
  • In reality the session lasts 45 minutes
  • The hourly rate of your interpreter is $ 88
  • The interpreter calls all participants using Dial-out
  • You are in Belgium (land line), your conversation partner is in China and your interpreter in The Netherlands (land line)

This session costs $ 130

This is $ 88 for the interpreter and $ 42 communication costs. At right you may read how these amounts are calculated.

Costs of the interpreter

The interpreter costs $ 88 because you booked him for 1 hour.

Communication costs

$ 29 x (45 min)/(60 min) = $ 21.75
Dial-out to participants in Belgium and The Netherlands (land lines) is free. The destination China is in zone 6 which has a tariff of $ 0.45 per minute. The telephony costs are:
45 min * 0.45 $/min = $ 20.25
The total amount for communication is $ 42

This session costs $ 146.25

$ 110 for the interpreter and $ 36.25 communication costs. On the right hand you may read how this was calculated.

The interpreter costs:
$ 88 * (75 min/60 min) = $ 110

Communication costs
