How to find and order an interpreter for a foreign trip
When traveling abroad, it is often necessary to communicate with foreigners. This can be communication with foreign partners, consultation in a foreign clinic, an exhibition, a conference, registration of a marriage in a foreign country or a transaction with a notary. Young people today are fluent in English and often other foreign languages. But what if you have not managed to learn a foreign language, and the issue requires an immediate solution?
For such cases, the best solution may be to search for and order translation services. But where to find and how to order a translator?
If you need a professional translator, for example, for serious business negotiations, participation in a conference, opening a bank account abroad or for consultation in a clinic, then we advise you to contact specialized companies. Such companies will provide reliable service and the services of trusted and qualified translators for your overseas trip.

One of these services, which brings together more than 18 translators around the world, is lingohaus.com... The company has offices in Russia, Estonia and Germany, and their employees speak several languages and will be able to find you a specialist literally in an hour and advise you in detail.
Alternatively, you can use social networks to find compatriots living abroad. For example, Facebook has a public group TRANSLATORS, JOBS AND JOBS, in which several thousand of our compatriots "live". This of course will not give you any guarantees that the found person will be fluent in the declared languages, but nevertheless, you can find a person there who will help you on a foreign trip. Surely it will not be a high-class language specialist, but at least he will help you with simple everyday issues during your trip.
Specialized bulletin boards are also a convenient independent way to search for a translator. For example, on the service babr.one collected several tens of thousands of ads from translators in different countries, with their direct contacts for communication. The service has the ability to filter by country, city and language. With the help of such a service, you can save on the commission of translation agencies, since it is possible to directly contact the translator. All you need to do is select a country, interface language and drive in a city. The system will show you the available translators with contacts.
Whichever way of finding a translator you choose, do not forget to prepare material for the translator in advance. Translators are very reluctant to take orders if they are not provided with details about the meeting, since real professionals value their reputation and are not ready to come to meetings unprepared. And for you it will be a huge advantage when the translator knows the topic of the negotiations in advance and can work effectively at the meeting.
