WHO WE ARE

**********************REQUEST-STOP until 31.08.2022 ************************

We have to inform you that we will not be taking any interpreting requests from now until 31.08.2022. The last few months have been very demanding and we need a break. You can still contact us in advance for events taking place from September onward. We look forward to seeing you again in September.

*********************************************************************************

+++ We’d like to ask you to please get in touch with us as soon as possible in your planning process when you’re considering to organise a multilingual event. Currently, we need your requests AT LEAST 1 week in advance of the actual event! Preferably more of course, otherwise we might just have made other plans. +++

We are a group of people with interpreting experience from Leipzig. It is our goal to support groups and initiatives that oppose political, social or cultural power structures (see WHOM DO WE SUPPORT).

We want to raise awareness about the importance of interpreting by being a visible group. We also want to show how language and oppression are connected and that mediators are humans, not machines, to act politically.

Additionally we want to relieve social and political activists, so that they do not have to spend their time and energy on mediating.

We would like to underline that successful interpreting involves certain conditions, otherwise we cannot meet a speaker’s expectations.

We think of ourselves as a collective that is critical towards hierarchies and that acts by consensus.
