Example calculation

Example calculation 1

  • You planned a session of 1 hour
  • In reality the session lasts 45 minutes
  • The hourly rate of your interpreter is SGD 110
  • The interpreter calls all participants using Dial-out
  • You are in Belgium (land line), your conversation partner is in China and your interpreter in The Netherlands (land line)

This session costs SGD 162.20

This is SGD 110 for the interpreter and SGD 52.20 communication costs. At right you may read how these amounts are calculated.

Costs of the interpreter

The interpreter costs SGD 110 because you booked him for 1 hour.

Communication costs

The conferencing costs are:
SGD 36 x (45 min)/(60 min) = SGD 27
Dial-out to participants in Belgium and The Netherlands (land lines) is free. The destination China is in zone 6 which has a tariff of SGD 0.56 per minute. The telephony costs are:
45 min * 0.56 SGD/min = SGD 25.20
The total amount for communication is SGD 52.20


Example calculation 2

  • You planned a session of 1 hour
  • The actual duration of the session is 1 hour and 15 minutes
  • The hourly rate of your interpreter is SGD 110
  • The participants Dial-in their selves

This session costs SGD 182.50

SGD 137.50 for the interpreter and SGD 45 communication costs. On the right hand you may read how this was calculated.

Costs of the interpreter

The interpreter costs:
SGD 110 * (75 min/60 min) = SGD 137.50

Communication costs

The conferencing costs are:
SGD 36 x (75 min)/(60 min) = SGD 45
Since the participants dial in their selves no telephony costs will be charged.
