Why you need Translators Insurance


Your business as a translator or interpreter is built on a foundation of trust and a professional service, which is what your clients will expect from you when they request your language skills and expertise. Unfortunately, mistakes get made, and if a client of yours believes that a mistake you have made has cost them money, or accuses you of not providing the level of skills and service you promised, then they could make a legal claim against you.

The potential cost to any business in the face of a claim can be high as there are often legal expenses to consider and then compensation costs to pay if a claim against you is successful, both of which could be financially detrimental to your business.

The Insurance Octopus works with a wide selection of UK insurers who provide the best choice of PI insurance to ensure you have the cover you need to keep your business operating without worry. It couldn’t be easier to get the cover you need at the right price.
