Why do interpreters and translators need insurance?

Interpreters and translators face a number of risks, ranging from negligence to property damage and bodily injury. Here's an example. 

You're multilingual and working with people from different countries who don't get along. You translate what you've heard correctly, but one of the parties is hostile and denies what you know they said. They blame you and sue for further breaking down discussions. 

In another example, you're translating a speech and do the currency calculations incorrectly. The extra zero that you left off mistakenly leads to financial losses. The entities involved sue you for damages. Hiscox helps you protect your business from the risks you can't see coming. 

Whether you're bilingual, multilingual, or translating sign language, you're vulnerable to errors. We offer a wide range of insurance products to support and protect you.
