A liaison interpreter works for ensuring communication between two or three people speaking different languages or during a meeting of small groups of people.
How to quantify the fee: the fee is normally based on a daily rate.
We can also allow for an hourly fee when an interpreter is required for a limited amount of time, but, however, the minimum fee is for two working hours.
An intercultural mediator usually works in the social contexts, such as schools, hospitals, registry offices, other public offices, police station, etc. The interpretation technique used can be assimilated to liaison interpretation.

For international conferences and meetings involving a greater number of speakers and participants we usually suggest simultaneous interpretation, which includes the service of two interpreters, in a sound-proof booth, who translate for an audience previously equipped with headphones. The two interpreters work in regular shifts of about 20-30 minutes.
For written translations the fee is calculated according to the type of work and can vary a lot. For instance, to translate a technical manual, the unit considered is a page of translation, that is 25 lines x 55 characters, or 1500 bytes. Otherwise it’s based on the word count.
For localization, that is the translation of information technology texts, the fee can be calculated on the basis of the type of work that is actually required, which might include adaptation of the texts and not just the simple transfer of a written text from one language to another.
For the translation of certificates, sentences, school documents, etc., that must be sworn according to Italian law, the fee is based on the translation page of 1500 bytes (25 lines by 55 characters), plus expenses for the legal stamps, the swearing service or statement, which normally has a flat rate per document.
