Translators and Interpreters Insurance FAQs

Question

Does it matter how many clients I see weekly/monthly etc?

Answer

No, we do not need to know how many clients you will see throughout the policy year.

Question

Can I work from home?

Answer

We can provide cover for you to work from home automatically within the policy, however we need to make you aware that if anything was to get damaged within the home then this will come under the home insurance and so you will need to let your home insurers know.

Question

Do you need to see my qualifications?

Answer

We do not need to see a copy of these. We will insure you on the utmost faith that you have experience and qualifications in the area you would like to be insured for. If a claim were made against you, we would then ask to see evidence of your qualification.

Question

Is there an age limit?

Answer

No, we do not specify the age.

Question

Do you require specific computer software to cover electronic work?

Answer

No, we do not require specific computer software. However, you should use the security settings recommended by your device and should not illegally download or stream anything as this can compromise the security of your device. We also recommend that you password protect each document you work on as well as having a password on the device itself.

Question

Do you offer discounts for members of professional bodies?

Answer

Yes, we offer discounts to members of the Institute of Translators and Interpreters, call us on 0330 123 5810 to speak to one of our specialist advisers about discounted insurance.

Question

Can I work overseas?

Answer

Yes we can provide cover for you to work outside of the UK as long as you live and are based in the UK and do not have any assets in the country you would like to work in, for example a house. As it is a UK policy if a claim was made for the work you have done in another country we would then need to bring the claim back to the UK to go through UK courts. If you had a house in the country for example, they would then try to take monies from your assets to protect the claim.

Question

Can I pay in instalments?

Answer

If you would prefer to spread the cost of your Talking Therapist Insurance policy, you have the option of setting up a Direct Debit to pay your premium in equal monthly instalments through our preferred provider, Premium Credit Limited (PCL).
