Example calculation 1

  • You planned a session of 1 hour
  • In reality the session lasts 45 minutes
  • The hourly rate of your interpreter is ZAR 790
  • 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 ZAR 1169.50

This is ZAR 790 for the interpreter and ZAR 379.50 communication costs. At right you may read how these amounts are calculated.

Costs of the interpreter

45 min * 4.10 ZAR/min = ZAR 184.50
The total amount for communication is ZAR 379.50
